President Yoweri Museveni has banned two of his ministers from Cabinet Meetings after he received intelligence that they could be exposed to the deadly Coronavirus and might spread to him or his other ministers.
The affected ministers have since been identified as Nakiwala Kiyingi, the State Minister for Youth and Children Affairs and Sarah Opendi, the State Minister for Mineral Development.
According to our Spies at State House, Entebbe, Museveni on Monday passed the directive that the two ministers are not supposed to attend any Cabinet meetings and come into contact with any of his ministers and presidential detail until they are cleared by the Ministry of Health.
Our Spies reveal that trouble for Nakiwala and Opendi started a few days back, when they reportedly shielded their lovers from being screened for Coronavirus, yet they had returned from high-Risk countries.
It is said Museveni issued the stern directive after receiving intelligence that Nakiwala’s hubby Deo Kiyingi recently returned from Dubai while Opendi’s boyfriend Atkins Katushabe also returned from a high-risk country.
“I have intelligence that the boyfriend of Hon Sarah Opendi (Atkins Katushabe) returned from one of the high-risk countries and refused to be quarantined. That is why I have requested her to stay away from cabinet meetings,” Museveni reportedly said, before disclosing that he had imposed similar restrictions on Nakiwala Kiyingi because her husband Deo Kiyingi (Bukomansimbi MP) had just returned from one of the high-risk countries and circumvented the quarantine.
It is said that both ministers allegedly used their influence and powers to shield their lovers from being quarantined by Health Officials in Entebbe, something that could have exposed them to Coronavirus infection from their respective lovers.
Since most of the confirmed cases of Coronavirus infections in Uganda are mostly Ugandans who travelled back from Dubai, Museveni’s minders advised him that the two ministers pose a huge risk, since their lovers also just recently returned from Dubai.
He thus ordered them to self-isolate and ensure that they undergo thorough tests with their lovers and when Ministry of Health officials declare them Coronavirus-free, then the Ministers will be allowed to attend cabinet meetings again.
However, efforts to reach either minister Nakiwala or Opendi for a comment about this matter were futile because they couldn’t be reached via their known phone contacts.
