Minister Aceng tells off social media critics on appearing in public without face mask

KAMPALA- The Minister of Health Hon. Jane Ruth Aceng has denied social media posts that she addressed a rally in Lira District without wearing a facemask.

Dr Aceng said that the youth in Oromo Sub County where she was launching the wearing of facemasks git excited when  heard about face masks, and specifically the Minister for health whom they call ‘Mama Corona’ and rushed to see her.

She denied that it was a rally and it was difficult to control as seen in the picture as many wanted to take pictures and also get masks from me.

Minister Aceng Statement dated today Sunday July 12th 2020,  is reproduced here below:

—————————————————–

My attention is drawn to social media posts of pictures of me meeting crowds with no social distancing and no masks and even alleging that I was holding a political rally.

I would like to reiterate that I was not holding a political rally. I was launching the distribution of face masks in Aromo Subcounty and training people on how to properly use the masks on Friday 10 July 2020.

However, at the time, village health teams and other youth were also being oriented on the processes for distribution of the Long-lasting mosquito net distribution nearby.

They got excited when they heard about face masks, and specifically the Minister for health whom they call ‘mama Corona’ and rushed to see me. They were difficult to control as seen in the picture as many wanted to take pictures and also get masks from me.

I took the time to educate these youth on the same as well as on the face masks. They left as very knowledgeable people appreciating the importance of face masks and social distancing.

As the Minister who is at the helm of the Corona response and an aspiring Woman MP of Lira District, I am cognizant of the rules and guidelines that we as the government have put in place.

I continue to appeal to you all to wear your masks, maintain social distance and wash your hands with soap regularly to prevent COVID19.

Dr Jane Ruth Aceng

Minister for Health 12 July 2020.
