Both the police spokesman and hospital director Sam Ruvuma Musinguzi has confirmed the incident. “We have arrested local defense personnel who were tasked with securing the hospital area since they are the prime suspects, but investigations are still ongoing,” Sup Eric kayiranga who did not want to reveal details said.
Sources claim further that it is not the first time such an incident happened.

“Unconfirmed information is that the stolen stuff was taken to DRC,” the source added.
