UGANDAN FATHER INFECTS 8-MONTH-OLD BABY WITH CORONAVIRUS, CASES RISE TO 14: M7’s Top Minister In Panic after Her Three Children Are Put Under Quarantine: Accused Of Using State House Vehicle To Save Them From Coronavirus Quarantine…

There was panic at the home of one of President Museveni’s top trusted ministers over after three of her children were put under quarantine over the deadly coronavirus disease.

On Tuesday evening, Robinah Nabanja, the minister in charge of primary health care in the ministry of health revealed that her fellow minister Molly Komukama, the junior minister in charge of finance and economic monitoring in the Ministry of Finance fell on her knees and prayed to  God to save her children from being taken by the deadly pandemic.

Nabanja said that her colleague is in panic because she is not allowed to see her children who are under coronavirus quarantine in one of the posh hotels in Kampala.

However, Nabanja faced a torrid time when Kampala Central legislator Muhammad Nsereko blamed her and other government officials for doing nothing to save poor Ugandans from being infected with the deadly virus.

Minister Nabanja

The maverick legislator revealed that there are a number of government officials who drove their big government vehicles to Entebbe airport, compromised and threatened officers who were checking coronavirus suspected patients not to take their children to isolation centers.

Nsereko noted that such barbaric arrogance is very dangerous and put the lives of Ugandans at risk. Nsereko gave an example that most of the children of these government officials who came from abroad are driven by drivers who once infected with the virus can also transport it to their family members who in turn will transfer it to fellow poor people in the markets hence spreading the virus very fast.

Nsereko asked the minister to explain to the country the cause of those impartiality. In her defense, Nabanja said that, she it was only Komukama who went to the airport in a state house car to see her children. No other government official went there to compromise medical personal on duty.

Minister Molly Komukama

Nabanja insisted that Komukama did nothing to compromise the health officials to let her go with her children but accepted them to be quarantined somewhere in the city.

Nsereko then questioned Nabanja to explain why she is going on the defensive to defend Komukama.

“Is she the one who used a State House vehicle to hide suspected coronavirus victims?” Nsereko wander asked. Nsereko was supported by former Kampala RCC, Aisha Kabanda who stated that she has information that government military officers and other government officers driving government vehicles went to the airport and forced officers to allow their children not to be taken to quarantine.

The minister who looked to be overwhelmed warned politicians especially those in opposition to stop politicizing coronavirus.

She revealed that the government is very serious in fighting the deadly pandemic that’s why it deployed the military to discipline locals who are trying to defy the President’s directives.

She revealed that so far there are seventeen hotels in town which are being used as isolation centers for coronavirus suspects.  She noted that the suspected coronavirus patients are allowed to choose the hotel they wish to be quarantine from.

Published

The State House Anti- corruption unit boss Lt. Col. Edith Nakalema has directed the Uganda Police Force to summon Indian Investor Abid Alam to Kasanda police station to record a statement on allegations of torture and rape.

According to credible sources at the Anti-corruption unit, Nakalema today morning talked to Maj. General Sabiiti Muzeeyi and asked him to intervene and assist a one Arthur Mugyenyi who accuses Alam’s workers of torturing his family members and raping his wife in presence of their children.

Sources further revealed that Mugyenyi with the help of their area Member of Parliament Simeo Nsubuga petitioned Nakalema’s anti-corruption unit claiming that they were not helped by the area police when Alam’s goons terrorised them. Last week, Nsubuga said that Alam sent 60 workers to Mugyenyi’s home with machetes and threatened to kill Mugyenyi and his family members.

He said Alam’s workers also cut down Mugyenyi’s banana plantation, destroyed his two houses, and took his 200 cows and 500 goats in a bid to evict him from his land.

Efforts to speak to Alam were futile since his known phone numbers were off.

Ugandans and Africans who have been plying their trade in China have cried to their governments to get them out of China.

According to a video from one of the Ugandans who is locked down in china, that was shared by Kampala Central legislator Mohammad Nsereko, they are being ejected from houses, denied access to health care and ejected from public transport and already 4 of their colleagues have died under unclear circumstances.

“The Chinese are discriminating us, when we enter their busses they all run out of the bus. These people are showing us their true colours, we are asking government to help. The Chinese should allow us to go home instead of forcefully arresting us and testing us,” he said.

He added, “We are being tortured, i call upon government to help us leave this country. Already four of our colleagues are dead. Let them allow us to go home. The landlords are chasing us from their houses and asking for a lot of money in rent yet we are not working. Everywhere we go we are being chased, we are now in hiding.”

Nsereko called upon government to immediately intervene and stop this alleged discrimination and inhuman treatment.

“I have received disturbing reports and videos of Ugandans and Africans in China being treated in a degrading manner. I have been informed that some have been ejected from houses, others denied access to health care and ejected from public transport. This is very unfortunate; we call upon the Ugandan government to intervene immediately in this matter.”
