On 9th November 2017, Dr Joyce Moriku Kaducu appeared on NTV’s On The Spot talk show to discuss issues pertaining to the then ongoing doctors’ strike.

A day later Dr Moriku was admitted to Mulago Hospital.

According to State Minister for health, Sarah Achieng Opendi doctors diagnosed her with food poisoning.

Opendi told NTV that Dr. Moriku later developed chest complications and had difficulty breathing.

For a week now the Dr Moriku has been under intensive care.

Today, Opendi visited her colleague at International Hospital Kampala.

There are plans to fly the former coordinator of The Aids Support Organization (TASO) to Aga Khan hospital in Nairobi for further tests and treatment.
