Stop Using Covid 19 Vaccination Status To Abuse Human Rights – Activists

Some activists have lashed out at the government for using vaccination status of citizens to abuse their rights. They made these remarks during a virtual town hall meeting under the topic “From lockdowns to liberty; debunking myths, interrogating the “science”, and the place of human rights and freedoms post-Covid-19”

Simon Ssenyonga, a human rights lawyer, used the education sector as an example. According to him, the public can not criticize the ongoing saga in the education system because of the first lady who doubles as a minister too.

Otherwise, the move to stop students from attending classes is an abuse of human rights according to activists.

“Students are being illegally discriminated against and their right to education is being abused. University students are being locked out on the basis of vaccination status. A scrutiny on education is perceived as an attack on the person of the First Lady of Uganda. One is not able to interrogate the challenges in the education sector,” said Ssenyonga.

Dr. Carol Atugonza, a biomedical scientist and researcher, disagreed with compulsory vaccination. She says as by nature, saying human beings are born with immunity to fight against diseases.

At the beginning of the vaccination process, the president had said it’s not mandatory. However, it doesn’t seem so anymore. People can no longer access public places without a vaccination card.

Does this therefore mean it’s now a must to get the vaccine?
