By Ambrose Gahene

A total of 53 medical students of Kampala based St. Augustine International University {SAIU}, recently conducted a research on various diseases that affect residents of Kisoro district in Kigezi sub-region. The research was conducted with guidance from senior medical personnel at Mutolere Hospital. They included; Dr Johnson Bahati, Mr Paschal Nsekuye, Mr Denis Nzamunganyiki and Mrs Bernadette Ndabishimye. The students in addition conducted their research in Kisoro Hospital, Chahafi, Muramba and Kinanira Health Centres. In their research findings, students discovered that the rate of malaria infections had drastically reduced in Kisoro district. “This is due to sensitization of residents on malaria infection prevention by district and local leaders, which we applaud the district leadership”, said one student.

The students latter toured Kisoro district attraction features, such as; the source of River Chuho and Kisoro district local government offices. They in addition visited the District Health Officer {DHO} Dr Stephen Nsabiyumva’s office, that of the District Chairman Mr Abel Bizimana, the District Resident Commissioner and Ceasor Development Kingdom among others.

Ceasor Development Kingdom Prime Minister Geofrey Hashaka latter took the students to tour the Uganda- Rwanda boarder at Kyanika. The students were accorded a chance by boarder immigration officials to visit the Kyanika international market on the Rwanda side.
