No Medals on Independence Day Celebrations-Minister Esther Mbayo

KAMPALA- As the celebrations for 58th independence draw closer on 9th October, the government has said that due to the existence of COVID-19 pandemic in the country, there will be no awarding of medals.

 Speaking to the Journalists at Uganda Media center in Kampala the Minister for presidency Esther Mbayo says that the celebrations that will take place at Statehouse Entebbe will be attended by only 30 people.

She says that due to the pandemic in the country and the world at large there will be no medal awarding this time round as it has been in the past.

The Mister further explains that they have also received reports that since the celebrations will be scientific which means low costs why can’t the government adopt this scientific way of celebrations even after covid-19 in all government functions.

Mbayo notes that it will be a debate to discuss from the general public whether the celebrations should remain scientific after Covid-19.

This year’s theme is: celebrating Uganda’s steady progress towards economic take off and self-sustaining economic growth.
