President Museveni has advised Muslims to stay at home instead of going to mosques for Eid prayers.
“I am confident that you have emerged from this period of abstinence spiritually rejuvenated and fortified,” Museveni said on Sunday morning.
“Due to the Corona Virus pandemic that has affected the entire globe, you will not be able to congregate in the Mosques, for the Eid-al-Fitr prayers, as is the tradition.”
“However, Allah’s boundless blessings will find you in your homes. I wish you and your families a joyous and blessed celebration – Eid Mubarak.”
The celebration marks the end of the holy month of Ramadan.
