Kampala: The ruling National Resistance Movement (NRM) party Secretary General Justine Kasule Lumumba has tested positive for COVID-19 pandemic after seven days of self-isolation something that has left her contacts at the secretariate in a total panic.

“Our party Secretary-General has tested positive for COVID-19 Pandemic and but she is stable with no serious symptoms. The party business, however, will go on uninterrupted despite her physical absence from office,” Namayanja said.
She added, “I, therefore, appeal to politicians across the divide to carry out periodic tests on COVID-19 and open up if found positive to save there would be contacts from being victimised by their silence.”
