NRM SG Kasule-Lumumba tests positive for COVID-19
The ruling National Resistance Movement (NRM) party Secretary General Justine Kasule Lumumba has tested positive for COVID-19 pandemic after seven days of self-isolation.
This has been disclosed by the party national treasurer Rose Namayanja-Nsereko at the party’s 15th press briefing since the presidential campaigns kicked off in November this year.
Every Sunday, the party addresses the media on the progress of its Presidential candidate and incumbent President Yoweri Museveni’s campaign trial on his bid to retain power.
“Our party Secretary-General has tested positive for COVID-19 Pandemic but she is stable with no serious symptoms. The party business, however, will go on uninterrupted despite her physical absence from office,” Namayanja said.
She added, “I, therefore, appeal to politicians across the divide to carry out periodic tests on COVID-19 and open up if found positive to save there would be contacts from being victimized by their silence.”
Official records from the Ministry of Health indicate that Uganda has so far registered 22,188 positive cases with 206 deaths while 9,117 had recovered.
