In an interview with Uganda’s Daily Monitor, the mortuary attendant who works at the Soroti Regional Referral Hospital in Uganda detailed the challenges he faces in his job as well as his motivation for dealing with dead bodies for the past 32 years.
“at the time when I used to drink a local brew, people would not want to share a drinking straw or calabash with me. I also noticed a scenario where a vendor had to wash the tube I used for taking the brew using hot water. People do not even want to share a pot or shake hands with me” He told Uganda’s Daily Monitor.
Although there are several challenges in the mortuary job, Basil Enatu(Mortuary attendant) asserted that he still loves his job and that has been the only reason he has worked as a mortuary attendant for so many years without getting fed up.
“I love working on bodies because they do not complain, do not fight, are humble, and are not trouble causers. After all, rich or poor, all are buried the same way by being lowered into the grave”.He stressed.
