SCHOOL REOPENING: Government to decide on fate of schools, Churches and bars tomorrow

KAMPALA- President Yoweri Museveni has announced that the decision to reopen the remaining closed sectors will be made next week.

Speaking during the National Prayers Day on Saturday August 29th 2020, Museveni said the national COVID-19 taskforce will meet on Tuesday to see what to do with the schools, churches, bars, and others.

Schools, churches and bar have been closed since March and even when government started on the phased easing of lockdown in June, they have remained closed due to fear of the spread of Coronavirus pandemic.

Museveni said majority Ugandans have listened to the government COVID-19 guidelines but the few who are disobeying might cause problems for the country.

“I am glad that the majority of Ugandans listened to our message. There is a minority that doesn’t listen and still pose a problem. In Kampala, people listen to multiple advices, explaining why cases are highest here. Out of the 29 who have died, 20 are from Kampala,” Museveni said. He added, “I congratulate all the Ugandans for praying because the scripture says Ask and it shall be given to you, seek and you shall find, knock and the door shall be opened to you.”

According to the Minister of Information and National guidance Hon Judith Nabakooba “His Excellency President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni has instructed the National Task Force team on COVID19 to review the possibility of a phased reopening of schools starting with candidate classes and clinical medical students”.

Nabakooba added that the Task force has also been tasked to review the status of other remaining sectors such as churches, weekly markets, the tourism sector and Entebbe international airport.

The review will also include the status of the entertainment industry such as bars, cinemas, nightclubs and sports events.

Thereafter the team will provide a report to His Excellency on these issues by early next week. He will then address the nation on the next steps forward.
