A whistleblower at Entebbe Airport has made a shocking revelation that government officials with relatives in category one countries are illegally sneaking them into the country.
Speaking under a condition of anonymity, the whistle blower says they are being intimidated by anonymous phone calls instructing them to subdue or bear with the harm on their lives for defying. “I have been abused and intimidated by all forms of Government officials who had their families travel back from category 1 countries,” says Sheila (not real identity) in a Whats App chat. “Worst yesterday when a whole state house vehicle drove to the air side to pick relatives close to the first family and we had nothing to do,” she adds.
She further reports of another top UPDF officer who yesterday threatened the health minister, Aceng and after he forced his way into the airport to collect his family that was returning from a category one country. “Today, a senior army officer came and took away his family after assuring the minister, Ruth Aceng on phone that he has his own arrangement for his family”, she reveals in relation to what she saw on Sunday, March 22.
As of today, Uganda remains with just one confirmed case and several suspected others across the country. The first case is said to be improving with signs of recovery. Other 1,800 foreign and locals are undergoing self isolation. What is disturbing is the fact that some elements in government are acting supreme and disobeying lawful orders which of course may worsen the crisis. Below is the WhatsApp chat of the whistleblower.
