The Ugandan High Commission in London has successfully seen off a total of 92 Ugandan Nationals and legal residents who have been stranded in the UK and Ireland following closure of Entebbe International airport to passenger flights due to the COVID19 pandemic.
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.
It is heartening that scientists, all across the globe, are spending sleepless nights in hospitals and laboratories trying to rescue us all from the snare of the Corona Virus. They are our heroes.
Social distancing is the new normal. For until the Corona Virus cure arrives – or the vaccine, for that matter – we are advised to stay safe and keep indoors – all day, all night – something that is driving a ton of people crazy. We are not having the luxury of taking strolls in the street as we take selfies. We ain’t slayin’ no more – until further notice — except, perhaps, if it has to do with fighting for our god-given [inalienable] human rights in the street — because #blacklivesmatter.
