Museveni: bars still closed, drunkards not reliable
President Museveni has said there are other sectors still closed like the bars and he is still gauging the situation.
“We are studying those and I will give the recommendations in a few weeks. All that will be easy when we start vaccinations,” he said Thursday night while addressing the nation.
“We are aware of the sectors still closed but I want you all to know that inconvenience is not the same as dying. Dying is final.”
Museveni said he doesn’t know whether drunkards are reliable partners.
“Even when you say we keep the distance on paper, will the drunkards adhere? The safe thing is to get the vaccine.”
He said the struggle against COVID19 is going well.
“The daily new infections are now fewer, we don’t know why. This is an interesting good sign.”
He appealed to Ugandans to continue following the guidelines noting that health is wealth.
“We have lost a number of prominent people from this COVID19.”
He said the small number of deaths is because of the precaution we took.
“The crisis may be coming to an end, we are getting vaccines. I will talk about the elections and politics on Saturday when I am addressing Tarehe Sita.”
“I congratulate you for taking part in the elections. You saw how peaceful the presidential and parliamentary election was. Elections are now finished. Start working, don’t waste time on electioneering.”
