KAMPALA — President Yoweri Museveni will address the country on Wednesday, April 08 after coronavirus infections jumped to 52 on weekend.
The president is expected to clarify on a number of questions raised by the public on social media including security forces continued brutality.
“I have received your comments and I will answer them on Tuesday,” the president said without specifying the time.
However, he normally addresses the country at 8 PM.
The President in his last address warned crime preventers against involving themselves in any security related tasks as the country responds to the spread of the Coronavirus and announced errant LDU’s would be handed heavy disciplinary action.
He activated Lt. Col. Edith Nakalema, the head of the Anti-Corruption Unit of State House, to deal with errant officers in the fight against COVID-19.
The president also clarified that the curfew doesn’t mean that people must stay indoors while at home.
The President reiterated his call to Ugandans to adhere to simple personal hygiene measures of washing hands with soap and water and avoiding to touch oneself in the face.
He also told people with cough and flue-like symptoms to stay away from others and isolate themselves in their homes – and seek medical attention if necessary.
