UGANDANS CELEBRATE AS PRESIDENT MUSEVENI ASSURES COUNTRY ABOUT LIFTING COVID -19 LOCKDOWN IN JANUARY 2022

Ugandans who have suffered economic meltdown due to a two year Covid -19  lockdown celebrated last night when President Yoweri Museveni assured the country that whatever the circumstances-whether the citizenry have vaccinated or not –he will reopen the economy by January 2022.

The Commander in Chief  in his live broadcast to the nation last night categorically stated that after government availing  well over 12 million covid -19 vaccines  by the end of December 2021 it will not be logical to continue have the country under a lockdown.

  “ We have made available at least 12million COVID-19 vaccines, enough to vaccinate the most vulnerable categories including Frontline workers as well as those with comorbidities such as people with diabetes, pressure,” President Museveni stated adding that ,the economy will fully reopen by January, regardless of whether some people absent themselves from the exercise. “The moral responsibility will remain with you,” he stressed.

Museveni regretted to note  that the elderly have not turned up as expected to receive the COVID jab, yet they are some of the most vulnerable people. He called upon government workers such as the DISOs, Sub Country and Parish chiefs to mobilize the elderly to turn up for vaccination.
