Kizza Besigye Accuses Museveni Of Locking Down Uganda But Allows Tourists To Enjoy The Country

Veteran opposition leader Dr Kizza Besigye has questioned President Yoweri Kaguta Tibuhaburwa Museveni’s decision to lock down Ugandans but allow foreign tourists to enjoy the country.

In his new total lockdown regulations to contain the spread of Covid-19 infections, Prwsusent Museveni froze transport and movement of people with a few exceptions such as tourists.

But Besigye, a medical doctor and former Museveni personal physician, easily punched holes in the new rules and regulations.

Taking to his Facebook page, the veteran opposition leader wondered how tourists will remain free to enjoy the country, as Ugandans are locked down.

President Museveni locked down Uganda for 42 days, following a surge in Covid-19 infections.

Museveni made the directives on Friday evening from State House in the capital Kampala, noting a relaxation in adhering to Covid-19 protocols.

The President allowed the tourists into Uganda but on condition that they are vaccinated and will only use designated vehicles.

At the same time President Museveni Friday hinted on the production of a more effective Uganda made Covid-19 vaccine that he said was gearing towards advanced stages even as virus cases continue to surge with government hospitals and medics saying they are overwhelmed by patients.

According to Mr Museveni, production of the vaccine in Uganda was delayed by lack of Covid-19 patients.
