Museveni reassures Nation about reopening the Economy by next year

President Museveni reassured the country that the economy will be opened by January next year regardless of whether all the people are vaccinated or not.

He made the remarks yesterday 28th October 2021 while addressing the country on COVID 19 and security matters.

He said that according to the Ministry of Health statistics, over 12.5 million people will be vaccinated by 31st December 2021 since Uganda will have received over 24 million dozes of vaccines by the end of the year.

Museveni urged Ugandans to go get vaccinated and also asked the Ministry of Health to increase in sensitizing and mobilizing Ugandans to get vaccinated before the vaccines expire.

In case the economy is fully opened in January 2022, it will bring the two year lockdown instituted in 2020 to an end.

This has disrupted a number of sectors such as businesses, schools, sports, entertainment.

According to the UN statistics, Uganda has had the longest period of school closure and this has hit the sector hard.

In regards to security, Museveni reiterated his stand on bail saying that murderers and rapists won’t be given bail anymore.

“Murderers, rapists will not be given bail. We the NRM fighters have never believed in bail. Bail is used by the intellect with the help of external enemies. We are not debating on this. No debating on criminals,” Museveni said.

Museve also said that they have in custody the assailants who tried to murder Gen Katumba Wamala, those who perpetrated the Masaka killings and those that killed a policeman in Mbarara.

He said that all the security operations carried out are intelligence led and they don’t need guns to fight these criminals.

Museveni also warned that these criminal gangs will be dealt with by the NRM like it did to Kony, ADF amongst other criminals.
