According to Lindah Nabusayi the Senior Press Secretary to the President of Uganda, Kaguta Museveni will address the Nation tomorrow July 27, 2022, at 8pm, from Nakasero State Lodge on issues of national importance.
This comes few days after Museveni addressed Ugandans on issues of security and the current economic crisis that has since ignited protests in various parts of the country.
President Museveni in many speeches has resisted calls for his government to launch price interventions similar to what Kenya’s President Uhuru Kenyatta has done, in recent days raising the minimum wage and subsidizing the cost of corn flour, a staple food.
Authorities are blaming the situation on the long-term effects of the Covid-19 pandemic and the raging war in Ukraine but according to pundits, some local measures can be taken to curb the situation.
Museveni has instead urged Ugandans to tighten their belts. He drew widespread scorn for a recent speech in which he told Ugandans to substitute cassava for bread, saying the starchy root tuber is a healthy alternative.
