Mulago Referral Hospital activities have been affected and others left stranded after the National Water and Sewerage Corporation (NWSC) cut the water supply over unpaid bills.
The water supply was cut due to the hospital unpaid bills amounting to more than Shs6bn.
The hospital Public Relations Officer, Mr Enock Kusasira said lack of water in the facility has affected many of the hospital’s operations.
He said this was especially in the labour wards, wards for kidney patients who are on dialysis.
Meanwhile, Luzira Maximum Prison has been temporarily reconnected on condition that the outstanding bill of sh8bn, accumulated over the years, is paid in two weeks.
Water in the maximum prison was disconnected leaving the detention center under threat of poor sanitation related diseases.
According to the National Water and Sewerages Corporation, the arrears had accumulated since the 2005-2006 financial year.
The spokesperson of the cooperation Samuel Apedel, said the prison’s bill is part of a sh30bn bill owed by government bodies to the water corporation.
