RX Radio Presenter has asked President Yoweri Museveni to open up the economy completely and allow Ugandans go back to their normal lives to reduce on the tension that is being experienced in the country.
Some sections of the economy like bars, performing industry are still officially closed due to the Covid-19 restrictions that were put in place in march 2019.
“People are stressed and depressed because of all the economic hardships that the country is going through. This tension is being made worse by the fact that people can’t even do what they want. This may trigger them into political demonstrations which will make it hard for President Museveni to rule the country in peace. Allowing people to go to parties, go to concerts will help them to relieve some of their stress and avoid possible political involvement,’ Fatboy said on the Wednesday morning show.
His co-host Olive Najjuma police seems to enforcing SOPs based on economic classes which makes it unreasonable.
“The bars down town in Katanga, Bwaise are actually open and working. You find people congested in one small place, drinking and dancing and police is doing nothing. As for bars in the middle-income areas like Najjera, Bukoto, they are still closed and police is very strict while bars in areas like Kololo, Naguru, Muyenga are fully operational too and being protected by police,” She said.
