The Prime Minister of Uganda Dr. Ruhakana Rugunda has told Parliament today that government is all set to start distributing food and other items to Ugandans effective this Saturday 4th April 2020.
Speaking during plenary ,Rugunda said We will start the distribution of relief food on Saturday, 4th of April 2020 starting with Kampala and Wakiso and the distribution will be done at LC1 level. Every individual will get 6kg of maize flour, 3kgs of beans and salt. According to PM Rugunda, the relief will be distributed at LC level with each person getting 6kgs of maize flour, 3kgs of beans. Lactating mothers and the sick will receive 2kgs of powdered milk & 2kgs of sugar.
Many Ugandans have been wondering what plans the government has for those people who earn on a daily and cant sustain themselves if they are not working and this seems to bring the debate to an end for now as we await to see if the government will live up to its word.
