Speaker Kadaga has tasked government to lift the lock down and teach Ugandans how to leave with the virus because it’s not going away anytime soon.
It should be noted that President Museveni sent Ugandans in a full time lockdown even before the country registered her first case on 21st March 2020.
This followed a concern raised by Kira Municipality Member of parliament Hon. Ibrahim Ssemujju Nganda during today’s plenary where he indicated that police is applying the covid-19 laws selectively because he was arrested on last Friday for a holding a small meeting but health Minister Dr. Jane Ruth Aceng who convened a serious political rally is left freely moving.
According to speaker Kadaga, government has no reason to continue maintaining the lockdown despite the achievement of flattening of the curve. She has called upon government to lift the lockdown and allow Ugandan back to work subject to Standard Operating procedures (SoPs).
