As to whether she is reaping what she sowed, we can not confirm but what we can substantiate is that Bushenyi District’s Speaker Ms. Justine Burisadi, on the 14th of August, 2020 tested positive of Corona Virus and is currently receiving her medication from Mbarara Hospital.
The Bushenyi Speaker has on several occasions been spotted at various gatherings including but not limited to; the manifesto launch of Ms Annet Katusiime Mugisha in Bumbaire and the delegates meeting for Ankole NRM leaders as organized by Capt. Mike Mukula despite the Electoral Commission restrictions on mass gatherings which were substituted with scientific campaigns as a measure to combat the spread of the pandemic. This only left many wondering how many people she might have infected and why leaders are preaching the social distancing they never practice.
As of yesterday, Uganda registered 66 new corona virus cases bringing the cumulative total to 1500 including 13 deaths. With this kind of disregard for COVID-19 regulations, one can only worry for the nation’s health status quo with warnings from several Government officials about the possibility of a second lock-down if such violations go on.
