President Museveni Urges Ugandans to “get back to business”

Bethel | 95timefm Museveni commissioned Mpondwe Border Market yesterday


President Museveni has urged Ugandans, especially in markets, to get back to business now that the country has been fully opened.

The President said people now only need to be fully vaccinated and not to worry so much about Covid-19 while in public places.

He was addressing crowds at the Mpondwe Uganda-DR Congo border shortly after commissioning phase one of the Mpondwe-Lhubiriha Border Export Zone (Market) and Mpondwe One Stop Border Post in Kasese District.

The Shs5 billion-facility funded by the World Bank through Great Lakes Trade Facilitation Project is meant to enable cross-border trade by increasing the capacity for commerce and reducing the costs faced by traders, especially small-scale and women traders.

The President assured continued peace to the people of Kasese and Rwenzori region and thanked DRC president Felix Tshisekedi for agreeing to work with Uganda to clear the Allied Democratic Forces rebels out of Congo.
