Kampala: His Excellency Yoweri Kaguta Museveni is set to address the nation on Tuesday 21, July, 2020, to highlight on the progress of  COVID-19 pandemic situation in the country.

According to Senior Press Secretary to the President, Don Wanyama, the President’s address will be aired live on all local Television and Radio stations at 8PM.

Museveni’s address comes at a time when Ugandans had started showing their grievances over endless lockdown due to lack of food to feed their families and much poverty.

Among most hit Ugandans in this period of nearly four months lockdown include Boda-Boda riders who were restricted from carrying passengers since the outbreak of the pandemic.

Others are salon operators, city traders and their landlords, church leaders, private school owners, among others.

In the same vein, President’s address comes a week after confirmed cases in the country surpassed the 1000th mark following a surge in coronavirus cases observed in the last two months.

To date, Uganda has so far recorded 1,056 confirmed cases, 1,023 recoveries and no death.

In the last address, President Museveni eased several restrictions, but since then there has been strong agitation for further ease of the lockdown from traders formerly operating in Shopping Arcades as well as religious leaders who want places of worship re-opened.

He also directed the ministry of trade, KCCA, and heath to conduct an assessment on shopping arcades to ascertain their readiness to operate under Standard Operation Procedures (SOPs). Ever since, 48 were approved to re-open but pending the president’s pronouncement.
