Government Has Warned Politicians Against Distributing Food Physically

The government has warned politicians against distributing food physically. Apparently, this is putting people at the risk of getting Coronavirus due to collecting in one place.

Minister of Information and National Guidance, Dr. Chris Baryomunsi, sent this caution to the government.

“We have learnt that some politicians both from the ruling party and the opposition have bought food and some have started and others intend to distribute to the population. They are going to do it through gathering people. We would like to caution and give them advice.”

Baryomunsi says the government appreciates their concern, however, its position about lockdown still stands.

“The position of government remains and our guidance still remains. We appreciate those who are concerned about the plight of our people but if they are to give physical food, then they should donate through the task forces,” he said.

Most politicians especially from the opposition parties say the government has failed its people. The project to give out money has almost failed because most of the people have not received it yet.

The fact that lockdown left many people jobless, means they are desperate. Currently, the public will take in help from whoever is willing to give it to them.

The move to stop politicians from distributing food should maybe be looked into.

The government can work with them to devise safe means of giving out this food. Otherwise, the truth is that people need this help.
