The President of Uganda, Yoweri K. Museveni, yesterday, June 4, 2020 delivered his State of the Nation Address to the Parliament of Uganda as is his constitutional obligation, beginning the fiscal year, to paint a general picture on the state of affairs in the country.
It was also the first of its kind as it was, this time, a two-venue event with the President speech being delivered from State House to the Members of Parliament via satellite in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic which requires social distancing — and, of course, being broadcast live on various media platforms to the entire nation.
President Yoweri Museveni touched on a wide range of subjects, including the coronavirus pandemic that has dealt a significantly huge blow to the economy.
He painted a rather clear picture of what could be the new normal of Uganda’s economy after Corona Virus is finally gone. His speech was pillared on the ideology of distinction between the Real and Vulnerable Economy.
