Col. Saad Katemba, the Gaddafi Football Club lauded Walukuba based health facility for the wise decision to work with them as regards improving the health of the players and staff.

I want to thank Nile international hospital for accepting to partner with us. That’s how you know institutions that do work for the benefit of people rather than self-satisfaction. You have seen the tag of 60 million; it’s not easy. Not anybody can come up and do it. If they were so much business oriented and geared to personal satisfaction they wouldn’t have done that.
