The president of Uganda Yoweri Kaguta Museveni was expected to release a speech addressing the economic status of the country today. While addressing the nation, Museveni talked about issues that have affected the country in the past particularly during the COVID-19 period in 2021. Should it be remembered that in the year 2021, Uganda held its general elections and as a result Museveni emerged the winner defeating Bobi Wine who automatically became the opposition leader. Violence was however witnessed in the country as Bobi Wine claimed an unfair election.
All that left unsaid, Museveni has revealed that during the COVID-19 period, high death rates were witnessed. According to Museveni, the high death rates experienced in 2021 that pushed COVID-19 were due to the indiscipline of the opposition during the elections.
"It was the indiscipline of the opposition during 2021 elections that pushed Covid-19 death up in Uganda. Now that we are emerging from Covid-19, Ugandans should thank and confirm the NRM party as a no-nonsense problem solver," read part of Museveni's statement.
