Kampala, Uganda | THE INDEPENDENT | President Yoweri Museveni is confident that Uganda has taken the right measures to control the mass spread of COVID-19.

“I am beginning to be hopeful that we can defeat this COVID-19,” he said as he started his address on Friday.

In his 8th address on the pandemic, he thanked Ugandans for responding positively to government measures to control movement and gatherings. He cited a lady who slept at her stall in Kampala market as an example of people’s response to government messages not to move.

“People are talking about convenience, this is war. It is not about convenience anymore, it is survival. A big struggle is upon us, lives will change, some sectors will definitely get a setback, but this is doable and we shall defeat COVID-19,” he said.

After today’s tests, three new cases of COVID-19 were confirmed out of 419 samples. The confirmed number of cases in Uganda now stands at 48.

Clarity of curfew

On the curfew, he condemned some security people for attacking people in their homes.

“I said stay home, not be confined indoors. Ugandans know what home means …the house, the veranda, the compound. I know that some people do not have toilets in the main house and have to walk out,” he said.

Key clarified that the distribution of food to people who live from hand to mouthย  in Kampala and Wakiso will go ahead, saying it is an emergency measure and different from a poverty alleviation programme.

Yesterday, Speaker of Parliament Rebecca Kadaga invited the Prime Minister to stop distribution of food in Kampala and Wakiso until MPS address the national issue.ย  Kadaga also asked that onย MPs travel, government instructs Police to let MPs through because they are on duty.
