Photo: Ugandan Nurse Jailed for Changing Client's HIV Positive Result To Negative

Ms Samali Mukooda, a Ugandan nurse, who uttered false HIV results has been found guilty and sentenced to a 12-month jail term if she fails to pay a Shs2 million fine. According to Entebbe Chief Magistrate Court, the nurse, who works at JBK Medical Clinic in Kawuku, Wakiso District, carried out an HIV test on one Don Byakatonda who tested positive for HIV on August 24, 2015.


While Don Byakatonda claims he just requested Mukooda to get him a medical report proving that he was HIV negative which he could present to his wife, the accused claimed that she altered the results because Byakatonda pulled out a pistol and threated to shoot her if she defied his orders.
