President Yoweri Museveni has warned against President Yoweri Museveni landlords against hiking or evicting tenants during the #COVID-19 lockdown saying it is not allowed.
“To the Landlords trying to evict people because of rent, this is not allowed. We are all in a #COVID-19 crisis. The world is not ending today; you can always demand your money later when all this is over”
In his address, Museveni said he was impressed by the conduct of Ugandans during this period of #COVID-19 lockdown and stressed that if it continues, like this, Uganda was to defeat Coronavirus. He however, warned the public against jogging and turning houses into bars warning that the law will catch up with them.
“I saw a video of so many people on the Northern bypass walking and running around that, they are exercising. This should stop. If you want to exercise, you can do that indoors. I will show you how it is done tomorrow. I will do a video for you”.
He further apologised for the harassment of the medical personnel by security personnel especially LDUs.
“That LDU’s stopped medical doctors and harassed them before the stickers came. I am very sorry about that. I also have problems with my security people who like beating people. This must stop, I don’t want to see a security person beating people”.
The president also revealed that out of 214 samples tested, it is only one sample that tested positive meaning that Uganda registered one people #COVID-19 positive and bringing the total number to 53.
