Ex-Deputy Attorney now State Minister for Labour Mwesigwa Rukutana has warned Youth he described as Idle to stop misusing social media over frustrating government projects.
According to Rukutana Social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter were designed to help people keep up with friends but not critique or frustrate government programs adding that social media users in Uganda have a tendency of spreading propaganda.
He also added that social media misuse has fueled cyberbullying and social divisions in Uganda.
Mr. Rukutuna made these remarks during an impromptu visit to Rubaare Health Centre. Rukutuna visited the health center after a social media post went viral claiming that the health center had stopped operations over lack of equipment.
The minister who was concerned about a social media post that went viral refuted the reports after his visit adding that the health center is fully operating except the Operation theatre whose operations had been suspended over cracks on the roof.
The Rubaare Health Centre IV theatre has not been operational for the last five years over lack of 24 million shillings to renovate the Theatre roof.
