Two opposition political parties have questioned the suspension of the embattled doctor Silvester Onzivua from Mulago.
Democratic Party acting Publicity Secretary Kenneth Paul Kakande said that those who terminated Onzivua are targeting his job because he stood up for the right principles.
Kakande said this while addressing the journalists in a press conference that happens every Tuesday in Kampala
Another opposition party Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) opposed the interdiction of Onzivua who is the Mulago hospital pathologist over a Police case of attempting to smuggle to South Africa late MP Cerina Nebanda’s body samples for toxicological tests.
‘Dr. Onzivua was simply doing his job and so that could not have called for his suspension from official duties’, FDC Party secretary spokesperson Wafula Oguttu said at a press briefing at the party offices in Najjanakumbi on Monday.
Oguttu said Onzivua was asked by parliament to carry out tests on Nebanda’s body parts so as to find out the cause of her death which could not have called for his arrest and neither suspension from work.
Press reports said that Onzivua has reportedly been suspended by the hospital executive director Dr. Biteraba Byarugaba pending conclusion of the criminal case against him.
