President Yoweri Museveni has called upon Muslims to maintain the COVID-19 Standard Operating Procedures set by the Ministry of Health even while observing the Holy Ramathan fasting period.
The message was today read by President Museveni at State House Entebbe.
“Do not congregate, you can pray from home, some of you can pray from the mosques as required by the set procedures. God is everywhere, just avoid congregating in big numbers.
