Would you let a junior doctor operate on you while getting instructions on his mobile

Check out Harry Sagara’s hilarious take on how the mobile phone has affected Ugandan lives and what motivates mobile operators.

To give you a hint, Harry says he listened to a doctor friend dictate a medical procedure to a junior by mobile phone. ‘That is the pancreas,” the friend shouted. I have to wonder if the junior was planning to cut the patient's pancreas off?

Then there’s the email from Harry's love: “Dear Richard, I couldn’t call you because MTN disconnected my phone for not paying my bills, I wanted to pay it but it was more than double my house rent. Those 5-hour calls aren’t cheap, I tried to get a job but I am not a Munyankole! I am really sorry about this. All my love, Stephanie.”

The column was published on Uganda's The Sunday Monitor.
