Minister Amelia Kyambadde Finally Closes Shopping Malls

The cabinet minister of trade, industry and cooperatives in Uganda, Amelia Kyambadde on Saturday made an immediate order to close all shopping malls following the number of Coronavirus victims in the country which is now totaling to 30 cases.

A couple of days ago it went up to 23 cases, but as of Saturday night, more 7 cases were confirmed bringing the total number of Coronavirus patients to 30.  The seven cases above were taken from 225 people and 218 tested negative.

“I had wanted that our people continue working but the rate of the spread of the disease is worrying. Life is more precious than anything else. So all shopping malls should be closed with immediate effect,” Minister Amelia Kyambadde said.

Minister Amelia’s decision comes a couple of days after president Museveni had not ordered to close the shopping malls.

“We need to stay home. Let us stay away from arcades. We will look at other issues when life returns to normal,” she said.

One of the shopping malls owner identified as Mr Matovu Manisuuli said that the current situation is a matter of life and death.
