“For Uganda to shut our schools for over a year is the most heinous crime. There is no justification for the measures that have been taken against schools. We’ve known children are least affected by COVID-19. Why should you shut down schools for knowledge acquisition because of Covid?
So those above 50 should be given leave or vaccinated at reopening of the schools.
The closure of schools is a generational catastrophe, this address is not to Mr. Museveni and his wife, it’s for the parents and schooling children. Parents must step up to avert this catastrophe. We need a master plan and it will not be made by the NRM regime.” Besigye said.
