Uganda Police are battling a fire at the Ministry of Health headquarters in Kampala. The cause of the fire has not been established but the fire brigade was on the scene soon after, fighting to contain it.
Police confirmed the incident, and urged onlookers to stay far away from the scene. Police put out the fire, but have asked all who work at the offices not to report to office until they finish investigations on Monday.
