“The village is in panic I couldn’t provide solution. The children who have died, their bodies turns yellowish. To make matters worse, two ladies told me that in most of health centres, there are no vaccines of measles,” said Kamya.

He added: “We want to know why there is shortage of measles in health centres. We request ministry of health to come to bukooba village and save my people.”
