In his address, Mr. Museveni indicated that public transport was free for operation provided they carried half of the passengers in the taxis. He also said this was possible after distribution of free masks to the people by government.

After sharp criticism from the public reaction to his address, Mr. Museveni has decided to address the nation today and clarify on the some of the directives.

This morning Senior Presidential Press Secretary, Don Wanyama in a tweet said some of the directives had been misunderstood and therefore, the need to clarify them.

“After receiving lots of feedback from the public on his address last evening, @KagutaMuseveni will today, at 8pm, hold a televised address to respond to some of the issues”.
