The Ugandan State Minister of Health for General Duties Sarah Opendi went undercover to catch corrupt health workers in the country.
The minister, dressed in a hijab, visited a hospital on a motorcycle.
There, a nurse told her she had to pay 5,000 shillings to take a blood sugar test.
The minister said she had heard health workers were demanding a bribe to carry out free treatment. She said: “I received many complaints that the staff at the hospital was extorting money from patients.”
After paying, the minister called policemen to arrest the health workers who solicited for a bribe from her.
