President of the Republic of Uganda
I congratulate all those that participated in the NRM Caucus executive elections and the EALA by-elections irrespective of the results. What matters is not the positions of individuals but the agenda of the party as a whole. Democracy won. Congratulations.
Watching counter-terrorism officers undertake their military and combat drills at the UPDF School of Military Intelligence and Security in Migyera, Nakasongola. This was shortly before passing them out.
By virtue of the Powers given to the President by Article 174 (2) of the 1995 Constitution of the Republic of Uganda, I hereby, appoint the following as Permanent Secretaries as indicated here:
After a series of meetings, the government has agreed to take over Busoga University as a public institution with its Shs15b loan. We shall pay the loan when we know what the money was used for and If this money was spent on public efforts.
The NRM policy is to have a public university in the original 18 colonial zones of Uganda. In Busoga, we are going to build a public university there (Namasagali). As that happens, the idea of taking over this private university is a good one.
I join the Moslem Community in Uganda and across the world in the celebration of Eid al- Adha or the Festival of the Sacrifice.
I met stakeholders, line ministers, KCCA executives, and leaders of the Metu Zhongtong Bus Company. I am happy to note that we have finalized plans for the company to assemble and manufacture buses to ease transport needs in the greater Kampala Metropolitan Area.
Marching to a favorite tune dedicated to me by the brass band. This was during a function at State House Entebbe.
Yesterday, I discouraged people who have been jogging in groups, exposing themselves to risk amidst the COVID-19 pandemic. You do not have to go outdoors to exercise. Here is my demonstration of how you can exercise indoors and stay safe.
In light of confirmation of a COVID-19 case in Uganda, I will today, at 4pm, address the country on what further steps to take so that we curb the possible spread of this disease. Thank you.
Nothing has caused prices of foodstuffs to be hiked. The bananas we had yesterday are the same today, the maize is the same. So the crooks who are taking advantage of coronavirus to hike prices of foodstuffs anywhere in this country will be arrested and their licenses revoked.
I saw a video of so many people on the Northern bypass walking and running around that, they are exercising. This should stop. If you want to exercise, you can do that indoors. I will show you how it is done tomorrow. I will do a video for you.
After work last night, I challenged my Bazukulu to an indoor work-out. We did Forty Push-ups. Just like I have always advised, even at your own home, you can stay safe, and remain fit and healthy.
