As Gen. Yoweri Tibuhaburwa Museveni prepares to address the nation regarding the possibility of reinforcing the total lockdown, insiders have said that the government has given Ugandans a grace period of 7 days to change their conduct.
It has also been revealed that Gen. Museveni has declined to impose a total lockdown citing a possible economic depression as the country strives to recover from the post election period. However, this corroborates with reports that the first family owns a chain of businesses in the central business district and therefore cannot risk losing again. Most of the first family arcades and malls lost tenants during last year’s brutal lockdown. People vacated arcades after being overwhelmed by rent dues.
According to the same sources, Museveni has ordered that Boda Boda riders go back to carrying strictly goods, not passengers while taxi and bus drivers have been directed to observe SOPs and carry half capacity of the passengers.
Schools have been ordered to preach the vaccination to staff and students. Even visits to boarding school premises have been suspended.
