Spread the love

Ugandan Ministers Nakiwala Kiyingi, the State Minister for Youth and Children Affairs and Sarah Opendi, the State Minister for Mineral Development have been banned from Cabinet Meetings after intelligence suggested that they could be exposed to the deadly Coronavirus and might spread it to the President or his other ministers.

Nakiwala and Opendi are reported to have shielded their lovers from being screened for Coronavirus, yet they had returned from high-Risk countries.  

Deo Kiyingi, the husband of Nakiwala Kiyingi recently returned from Dubai while Opendi’s boyfriend Atkins Katushabe also returned from a high-risk country.

It is said that both ministers allegedly used their influence and powers to shield their lovers from being quarantined by Health Officials in Entebbe, something that could have exposed them to Coronavirus infection from their respective lovers.

The President thus ordered them to self-isolate and ensure that they undergo thorough tests with their lovers and when the Ministry of Health officials declare them Coronavirus-free, then the Ministers will be allowed to attend cabinet meetings again.

Uganda has reported new 5 cases of Covid-19 which brings the total to 14 people.
