Kanungu district has approved proposed user fee for the theatre and related services at Kanungu health center IV Katate in a private partnership with Chaperone International as a means to complement government community health services.

The council chaired by the district speaker Hon Frank Byaruhanga on Wednesday approved the user fees which were described as fair to the Kanungu community.

Chaperone International with support from Dr. Holgan Listle a German surgeon and his friends has for the last year contributed funds for theatre and scan services at the health center in Kanungu district.

During the council sitting at Rukiko hall at the district headquarters, on Wednesday, Rukundo Joshua the Nyanga sub-county LCV councilor moved a motion to approve the user fees because they were fair and affordable to the Kanungu community.

Hon Rukundo was seconded by Hon Immaculate Birungi the Kanungu LCV councilor who said that she recently had a meeting with the hospital administration and officials from Chaperone International to discuss the user fees and found out that 200,000 shillings for theatre services is fair to the community.

However, the council requested for a memorandum of understanding between the district leadership and chaperone International.

This was raised by Rev Levi Turinawe the councilor LCV representing the elderly citing rumors and sabotage of the project.

 But the speaker Hon Frank Byaruhanga was quick to defend the district leadership saying that the M.O.Us were ready and will be discussed in the next council session

The district Chief Administrative officer David Betega also assured the council that this week the solicitor general will visit the district to finalize these M.O.Us . Martin Atukwase Kafanta the Chaperone hospital administrator hailed the district leadership for approving these fees and this will benefit the Kanungu community.

The LC5 chairperson Kanungu district Eng Sam Arineitwe Kajojo also said that the Chaperone health project will benefit the health center through providing fair health services and employment at large.
