Museveni to deliver 5th address at 8pm

President Museveni

President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni will at 8pm tonight, deliver his fifth address to the country in light of the Covid-19 pandemic.

“Remember to follow guidelines given by the Ministry of Health and myself to stay safe and healthy,” he said.

This came after the health ministry declared new five coronavirus cases in the country Wednesday.

The five include a baby aged eight months, a salt trader and a man who travelled from Germany and two Chinese nationals.

Food and sanitizers

On Tuesday, Museveni warned traders against hiking prices of food saying there was no reason to do so.

“Our food is produced here, nothing has caused prices of food stuffs to be hiked. The bananas we had yesterday are the same we have today, the maize we had yesterday is the same maize, so the crooks who are taking advantage of coronavirus to hike prices of foodstuffs anywhere in this country will be arrested and their licences cancelled,” he noted.

“This is very unacceptable, we are going to send spies to pretend like they are buying and if they find you have increased prices of food stuff and essential commodities, we shall come for you.”

He said for the rest of the people who are on unnecessary pressure to buy sanitizers, do not go for overpriced santizers, use soap because it works effectively too.

“Remember to wash your hands as many times as possible, self-isolate if you have any COVID-19 symptoms, and do not touch your nose, mouth or face,” he noted.

He added: “Most importantly, we should not panic, we shall defeat this virus.”
