FDC demands reopening of places of worship and schools
Written by Caroline Katusiime on August 2, 2021
The Forum for Democratic Change-FDC party has welcomed President Yoweri Museveni’s decision to partially lift the lockdown imposed on the country on June 18, but called on the President to reopen places of worship and schools.
While lifting the lockdown, President Museveni said places of worship will remain closed for another 60 days when the order would be reviewed. For schools, Museveni said, they will remain under key and lock at least until students aged between 12 and 18 have been vaccinated.
While speaking to journalists at the party’s headquarters in Kampala, FDC spokesperson, Ssemujju Ibrahim Nganda, says that the fact that markets remained fully functional and there were no known pikes in infections or deaths is testimony that lockdowns alone can’t explain the reduction in causes.
