Speaker Rebecca Kadaga has told government that the lock down has outlived its purpose.

Kadaga while presiding over Plenary on Tuesday afternoon demanded for an evaluation of Covid-19.

Speaker’s concerns come at a time when the country has registered 1040 total cases and 984 recoveries.

Kadaga tasked the Prime Minister Ruhakana Rugunda to present an evaluation of Covid-19 in Parliament for debate.

The Speaker questioned: “I really want the government to be more serious with this issue of Covid. Can’t we just learn to live with it.”

Kadaga went on: “And just organise our society to manage it. How long is this Covid going to continue. I think it is important to guide our people to live within the situation.”

She raged: “But to say lock down two months, 5 months, 7 months. No. I think it is a problem. I think we need an evaluation of this lock down. I think The country needs an evaluation of the lock down.”

Kadaga queried: “So we can know how to move. This kind of keeping people in suspense is not right. So Prime minister I think arrange and give us an evaluation so that we discuss it here in the house.”
