Presidential hopeful and Kyadondo East Mp Robert Kyagulanyi has teemed up with the Coronavirus National Taskforce instituted by the Ministry of Health to provide food items to the starving population during this bad times of COVID- 19 pandemic.
It should be noted that earlier this week, tough -talking President cautioned politicians against distributing food to vulnerable people saying anyone found so would be accuse of ‘attempted murder’ subsequently blocking people power bids. Now people power has sided with his directives to provide food relief through National task Force.
People power leader noted that they are to hand over relief donations- worth millions- to the government’s Corona Taskforce.
He announced ” Friends, as indicated yesterday we shall be donating food relief to some poor and vulnerable people in Uganda through different ways.”
We are already using boda boda deliveries and many people have been reached. Secondly, we have decided to deliver some of the food relief through the National Taskforce instituted by the Ministry of Health. Our hope is that the Taskforce will go across the country and urgently run to the aid of our starving population in all corners of the country.
In the meantime, let us all continue to observe social distance, stay at home if you can, and follow other precautions as advised by experts.
I thank all of you who have made donations to this cause. The leadership of #WomenInPeoplePower who are coordinating this activity just briefed me that the response has been overwhelming. We also hope that the Taskforce will do its work transparently and not give in to corrupt tendencies that have riddled such activities in the past.”
