Mbarara woman threatens to commit suicide over loans
A woman in Mbarara city has threatened to commit suicide if President Museveni does not order financial institutions to stop disturbing her and other Ugandans who have loans, in his address tonight.
The ‘stressed’ woman in her 40s (who preferred anonymity), a resident of Kakyeka, Kamukuzi has decried threats from Mushanga SACCO whose manager has been storming her home almost on a daily basis despite notifying him of being badly affected by Lockdown due to coronavirus outbreak.
‘President Museveni should save us otherwise I will commit suicide. Banks and SACCOs are not sympathetic,’ the woman narrated.
She added that she also has another loan in another bank (which we prefer not to disclose) but luckily enough, the bank is considerate.
With Ugandans awaiting tonight’s Presidential address, many have further asked authorities to punish landlords who are neither patient nor considerate as well as addressing other concerns including allowing boda bodas to carry passengers but with vigilance and observation of guidelines to prevent the spread of coronavirus.
Some, however, are in great support of staying under lockdown and curfew until the coronavirus pandemic is completely ruled out.
Currently, Uganda has registered 1,072 total cases; 958 recoveries, no deaths.
