A senior gynecologist at Mulago Hospital has been suspended for two years over misconduct.

Dr. Asinja Kapur is said to have altered a medical report involving a couple whose baby boy disappeared at the hospital.

They were instead given a corpse of baby girl.

The Uganda Medical and Dental Practitioners’ Council has confirmed that Dr. Asinja altered original records showing that the couple had delivered a baby boy.

The 2006 incident involved Sauda Nabakiibi and her husband Farouk Bukenya, who conducted DNA tests and confirmed that their samples did not match with those of the body they were given.

The head of the Council, Dr. Joel Okello says investigations will continue and over 35 cases involving exchange of babies at Mulago hospital are being handled.
