Uganda’s health minister Dr.Jane Ruth Aceng has quashed all hopes of having any plans of flying back stranded Ugandan nationals from different countries.
Speaking earlier today from Broadcasting house,the minister said that in Uganda alone, we have over 1000 people who were locked out from their countries and they’re staying here. Wherever you’re locked, please look after yourself, maintain your social distance and keep safe.
As explained, the lock down will not last forever. You’ll have the opportunity to come back and it is better that you keep safe so that you have the opportunity to come back but if you’re careless and you contract the disease then you will not come back home. Even those in Uganda are looking forward to going back home but they can’t due to the ongoing situation,” Aceng said.
Ugandan musician Eddy Kenzo has for long been pleading to return to Uganda after he was locked out of the country as he was still in Ivory Coast were he had gone to perform.This quashes his last chance and will have to wait until all this is over then he can return home.
