Politics: Health Minister Jane Ruth Aceng removes face mask
Politics – The Cabinet Minister for Health, Dr. Jane Ruth Aceng has received criticism from various stakeholders especially politicians after her viral photo addressing people without a face mask contrary to the guidelines in the fight against COVID-19 pandemic.
In the two Photos that went viral on Saturday July 11, 2020, the Health Minister who recently declared her intention to aspire as Lira district Woman MP is seen holding a mini rally (reportedly) in Lira northern Uganda without a face mask nor social distance with people less than a metre next to each other.
Commenting on the incident, the opposition Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) wondered why the party spokesperson Hon. Ibrahim Ssemujju Nganda was arrested on Friday for not conducting a rally like this but rather FDC leaders meeting in Kasokoso to plan for the coming elections.
Dr. Ruth Aceng is among the “Scientists” that President Museveni continues to quote as his advisors in his COVID-19 addresses.
