RX Radio Proprietor and The Fatboy Show presenter James Onen aka Fatboy has criticised government officials that have been making decisions regarding the control of the Covid 19 pandemic as selfish individuals that do not care about the well-being of the citizens and only care about themselves.
During Tuesday’s show, Fatboy noted that government officials are taking advantage of the Covid-19 pandemic to impose their power egos on Ugandans who are in turn suffering due to all the unreasonable restrictions that are still being imposed a year after the pandemic broke out.
It’s been a year since Uganda went under a lockdown like most countries after the pandemic broke out. Most Ugandans did not anticipate that the lockdown and restrictions will last a year.
“It’s as if these government officials are just happy to practice the ‘I have the power’ games to continue imposing ridiculous restrictions on helpless Ugandans. Why are bars are still closed, why are musicians still restricted from performing and yet other sectors that are riskier remain open? People’s businesses are crumbling but it’s like these politicians do not care about what happens to Ugandans. While they are in their beautiful, air-conditioned taxpayer-paid offices with their big salaries still coming in in full, they forget that there are Ugandans that are sleeping hungry” he said.
His co-host Olive Najjuma noted that some of these government officials are making wrong decisions because they are individually not affected.
“Like the indefinite closure of nursery schools, they do not care because their children and grandchildren are in international schools that are fully operational. They do not care what losses nursery school owners are going to face or the parents whose children are stuck at home,” she said.
