Museveni directs political aspirants to test for COVID-19 – And here is the shocking reason why
In a message he put on twitter the president wants the ministry to have these people to test first.
The president him self tested after fearing that he had got the virus. At his party headquarters two people already have COVID-19. So with this the president does not want the country to take chances.
Uganda so far has only three people who have died because of CORONAVIRUS. So the president does not want to see this number increasing.
He has done a lot in fighting this virus. He is ever communicating to the public on how they can protect them selves.
As of Saturday 1st / 08/ 2020, Uganda has 1154 cases with 1028 recoveries and 3 deaths.
Things EC emphasized in this coming elections
First of all the EC says the elections are going to be scientific.
Secondly there will be no rallies as these will lead to easy spreading of COVID-19.
Thirdly every one must observe the SOPs during elections.
But we are yet to see what happens, moreover the opposition is yet to say anything on this. And parties are gearing up for party primary elections ahead of the 2021 general elections.
So let us wait and see if this will not be made political because it is a crucial health matter.
Why politicians might want to fight this?
Surprisingly, politicians are likely to fight this. They may think it is a ploy to force them in to quarantine even when they are not sick.
And they may want every body to test whether from NRM or opposition. But the president has already done the testing.
So keep on News Now Uganda we shall give you more details on this.
