Why Is Nakasero Blood Bank Denying Ugandans Blood When they Need it?

The inhumanly inconsiderate, insincere Uganda blood bank Nakasero, how I lost my niece and why am never donating blood.

Yesterday at about 4pm, I received a call to donate blood to save the life of my niece at the new Mulago neonatal hospital. The doctor had called the Nakasero blood bank & had been told they didnt have blood A+ and if we had a donor, we could donate on site before 6pm. The doctor quickly wrote my sister in law a note to head to the blood bank as I was equally enroute. Upon arrival at the blood bank (5:30pm), we were told they had blood A+ (contrary to what they had told the doctor on phone) and that we couldnt get it unless we had a doctor’s request. Even upon presentation of the doctor’s note, we were told if it was that, then we needed to come with a lab attendant from Mulago. After many trials explaining, we left the blood bank, my sister in law in tears.

This morning, I woke to a phone call at 5:30am notifying me that my niece had died. The pain, emptiness & guilt is immeasurable. I keep asking myself…

Why didnt nakasero blood bank give us blood?
If they didnt have it, why couldn’t they draw it from me?
Why should we need a lab attendant from out?
Aren’t there emergency situations they can handle?
…etc

My other pain is… we donate blood, willingly, freely and for free.
Why is it so hard to get blood?
Maybe if Nakaseo blood bank had just been human, my niece would be alive.

Addressing media, Brenda Nanyonjo, the Kezzi Entertainment director and Miss Uganda CEO, said that registration kicked off on Monday. “We are looking for young and confident girls. On top of the usual attributes like age and height, we will also be keen on personality and character.” She said.

Like the 2018 edition, contestants will be scouted from the different regions across the country. “We will hold regional searches, but because we don’t have ample time, we will be scouting for contestants in two regions on the same day.” Nanyonjo noted.

The lucky candidates will then be heading to boot-camp on July 6th, before the ultimate winner is crowned on July 27 during a ceremony that will be hosted at the Sheraton Kampala Hotel.

Meanwhile, socialite Zari Hassan will return as the Miss Uganda 2019 patron and will also still be one of the judges. The socialite was among the judges of 2018 Miss Uganda beauty pageant where Abenakyo Quiin was crowned. Abenakyo went on to win Miss World Africa crown.
