We lived through the HIV/AIDS pandemic without closing lodges—Kabuleta wants Gov’t to lift lockdown

Former Presidential candidate Joseph Kabuleta has expressed his dismay in the continued locking down of the country even when science has shown that COVID-19 is ‘here to stay’.

The outspoken city pastor says that he has never believed in a lock down, especially because COVID-19 is not among the top ten killer diseases.

The lock down was a mistake in the first place and it should be ended now. The President can’t sit like a mother bee and start giving directives while families starve,” says Kabuleta.

“There are people whose conditions are sensitive like diabetes. If you lock them down and they miss one dose, that’s a death sentence,” he adds.

According to Kabuleta, the lock down is here because Government thinks some deaths matter and others don’t.

According to Kabuleta, the lock down is here because Government thinks some deaths matter and others don’t.

“COVID-19 kills people who matter according to them, that is why poor Ugandans are locked up at home.

We lived through the HIV/AIDS pandemic, we didn’t close lodges. We left it all to people to choose whether to live a healthy life or contract the virus. Why can’t we transfer the same methodology,” he says.

He anticipates that the lock down is going to cause Uganda effects that we will need 10 years to recover from.

“I hear essential workers, who is not? To children whose father is a boda boda rider, he is more essential than the President and his entire Cabinet,” says Kabuleta before asking government to focus on sensitizing the masses to learn how to take responsibility for their own lives through this pandemic.
