The Minister says that the endless locking down and lifting without a clear plan and solution to curb the pandemic in the country doesn’t take the nation anywhere apart from hurting its development.

The outspoken Ssekabembe said that the lockdown affects the sports industry and tempts the investors and sponsors in the sports industry to lose passion. He advised the government to concentrate much on vaccinating Ugandans.

“The government should concentrate much on vaccinating Ugandans because it’s the only way we can get back to normal.

If this is not done we are likely to lose sponsors who support various competitions in the country.”
