Dr. Bedah Ssenkwale declined to speak to the media. Geoffrey Osinya, a detective attached to the State House Health Monitoring Unit, said Dr. Bedah will be arraigned in court to answer charges of possession of government stores and embezzlement.

 

The arrest of Dr. Bedah comes at a time doctors are pushing government to disband the State House Health Monitoring Unit, saying it undermines their profession. They want cases of professional misconduct referred to their professional bodies for redress.
