CONFIRMED: Museveni Set to Address Nation on School Reopening, Covid19 Response President Yoweri Kaguta Tibuhaburwa Museveni will deliver his Covid19 address tomorrow almost two months since he extended the lockdown for sectors like education and eased the same for others such as businesses.

Senior presidential press secretary Lindah Nabusayi has said the address will happen in the evening.

As usual, all radio and television stations will broadcast the address.

“President Museveni will address the Nation on Covid19 situation and related issues on Wednesday September 22, 2021 at 8pm. The address will be live on all Television and Radio Stations,” confirmed press secretary Lindah Wamboka Nabusayi.

Since Museveni last addressed the nation, the second wave of Covid19 pandemic has subsided, with daily cases dropping significantly.

The issue of school reopening is expected to prominently feature in the president’s address.

Meanwhile, bar owners under their association had also vowed to re-open their bars, saying the 60 days President Museveni had given them in his last address had elapsed.

Religious leaders will also be interested to hear from the president on whether places of worship will be allowed to reopen, having kept them on lockdown for 60 days, in his last last address in July.

Museveni in his last address on Covid-19 on July 30th, 2021 partially reopened transport means and other sectors though he maintained on Schools and places of worship.

Museveni is also likely to give an update on security, weeks since at least 30 people were killed by Bijambiya gangs in Greater Masaka Area.
