The head of state President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni is set to give a national address about COVID-19 and matters to do with security in the country, this Thursday, October 28th, 2021.
According to sources, the national address will be held at State House and will be broadcast on all radio and TV stations.
Museveni last addressed the nation in late September when he lifted the COVID-19 lockdown and relaxed some of the regulations that had been put in place by the government to combat the pandemic, like reopening places of worship, lifting the ban on public transport, increasing the number of people at public gatherings to 600, among others.
However, this particular address comes a few days after terrorist group Islamic State carried out an attack in Komamboga, where they denoted an explosive that killed one person and injured several others.
Although the police had earlier on described the attack as an act of domestic terrorism, Islamic State, a global terrorist group, claimed to have masterminded it.
But president Museveni on Sunday instructed the police and sister security agencies to quickly investigate the attack and bring the culprits to book so as to accord justice to the victims of the bombing.
This is the second deadly terrorist attack in Uganda after the 2010 bombing at Kyadondo Rugby Grounds that was masterminded by Al-Shabaab terrorists which left over 70 people dead.
