The same news has been confirmed by his press secretary Linda Nabusayi who tweeted, “President Museveni will this Friday, December 31, 2021 address the nation at 8pm from Rwakitura, Kiruhura district to give his new year message and Covid updates. The address will be live on all radios and televisions.”
The key exciting part Ugandans can’t wait to listen to in the leader’s address is that concerning the full reopening of the economy and schools.
In his previous address in October 2021, Museveni said Uganda will fully reopen its economy in January after almost two years of control measures to contain the spread of Covid-19, ”as at least half of the targeted population would have been inoculated.”
The Health Minister, Dr.Jane Ruth Aceng few days ago said that only 3.4 million translating into 15% of the targeted 22 million people have been fully vaccinated against Covid whereas 9.1million translating into 44% have taken the first jab.
According to our sources, during a meeting between the president and the Robinah Nabbanja Covid task force on Monday met at his country home in Rwakitura as they presented him with the status report on the Covid situation in the country, the scientists discouraged the full reopening of the economy that they wanted to be extended for at least two weeks.
Meanwhile, it remains unclear whether he will indeed reopen as he promised or not…stay logged on…our reporters are set to give you live updates on today’s address.
