The Ugandan State House has also asked the telecom regulator, the Uganda Communications Commission to investigate social media users who declared President Museveni sick or dead.

According to the senior presidential press secretary, Lindah Nabusayi, the only reason why the President has not been seen in public of late is ‘’because he has chosen to work virtually as part of the COVID-19 containment measures.’’

President Yoweri Museveni was sworn in for his sixth term in office as Uganda’s president on Wednesday, May 12, 2021, in Kampala, the country’s capital, amid clampdown on opposition and human rights violations.
