SPAN on death of Mozey Radio
GOOD BY MOSES RADIO A VICTIM OF CIRCUMSTANCES.
It is sad that Ugandans are dying without getting the best medical treatment our nation can afford to offer our citizens. Not that people don’t die with the best healthcare system available but in Uganda your life hangs in a balance daily.
I grieve for the lives lost unnecessarily in our nation Uganda. I have no complete diagnosis available for the late Moses Radio but from what I have heard, he formed a blood clot in the brain after being hit or thrown out from a building. This trauma is mainly due to head injuries attributed to force on one’s head. Most often blood clots form in subdural space between the brain and the skull causing a subdural hematoma or bleeding in that area which could cause a clot, and if detected soon, an emergency surgery can be performed to save the victim. I am not a neurologist and I am not an expert in head trauma injuries but with my limited medical training I can tell what might have happened to Moses.
If Moses was injured in Entebbe and emergency responders were called, they would have taken the victim to Entebbe Hospital where a quick CAT scan of his head would have revealed a blood clot and emergency surgery should have been performed. We don’t know where the victim was taken and for how long he was without treatment.
He was last seen in Kampala Case Clinic with the help of a walking stick which should have alerted medical professionals that something was wrong for him not to maintain his balance after the trauma.
The medical professionals in Uganda must be given credit given the conditions under which they practice medicine and they must be applauded. The government of Uganda has neglected its obligations to invest in medical facilities. We are all gonna need medical services at one point or another. We have many Ugandan medical professionals and others outside Uganda that could help but the political situation at home must change.
Museveni cannot pretend not to know what is going on in his government, police, prison that torture and kill innocent Ugandans. On so many occasions Museveni has admitted that the police is infiltrated by criminals but he keeps on appointing Kayihura to head the police.
The way the police arrested their own, Muhammad Kirumira by breaking his door down as if he had committed a murder or taken hostages, must be condemned by all peace loving citizens.
My condolences go out to Moses’s family and may God give him ever lasting peace.
