KAMPALA – President Museveni has revealed that he was forced to test for Coronavirus after he lost his voice.
According to the President, when he developed a sore throat that saw him lose his voice on Sunday, he had to test for COVID-19.
“My first fear was that I had got coronavirus, so I called the doctors to take a sample. The results came back and I did not have coronavirus,” he said.
Mr Museveni was speaking at the ruling National Resistance Movement (NRM) offices in Kampala where he was nominated as the party’s sole presidential candidate for the 2021 general elections.
The President made the revelation after he struggled to project his voice following suffering a sore throat.
“I apologise for the hoarse voice, I had some sore throat,” he said.
Instead he explained that doctors found he had acquired a bacteria infection which resulted from speaking through the face mask over a long period of time.
“I have been taking ginger, lemon and some honey and now the voice will sort itself out,” he added.
