By Brian Atuhura
Masindi District COVID-19 Task Force Committee Members have a reason to smile following the statement from the State Minister for Bunyoro Affairs Hon. Jeninfer Kacha Namuyango who affirmed to members that each District was disbursed funds to cater for COVID-19 Activities.
Namuyango said, "Government Ordered each Ministry to slash their Budget to 40% to cater for COVID-19 Activities. Each Local Government was allocated 160 Million Shillings and Shillings 100 Million for Municipalities Country Wide".
The State Minister Revealed this statement yesterday during an urgent District COVID-19 Committee Meeting that was held at the RDC's Office.
However, Members also asked the State Minister to Lobby to Government for a new Hospital, since the current General Hospital cannot handle a number of patients who always come to seek medical services and that the current Hospital lacks some essential facilities to handle severe cases.
Namuyangu is for her regional tour and she was also tasked by the Prime Minister together with the State Minister for Public service, Hon. Mary Mugasa to oversee the registration exercise of the people meant to recieve COVID-19 Relief Funds in Bunyoro Sub-region.
