To support Covid-19 awareness and prevention, Twaweza Uganda, a civil society organisation, has teamed up with popular comedy outfit, Fun Factory to release a song.
Titled, Yambala Mask (which loosely translates to wear your mask), the song promotes messages about protecting yourself and your loved ones against the Coronavirus.
The song’s lyrics are in six languages – Luganda, Runyakitara, Kiswahili, Lusoga, Lingala and Luo – and encourage everyone to wear a mask so as to prevent the spread of the virus and protect their loved ones while drawing attention to the seriousness of the virus and highlighting its symptoms.
Officials from Twaweza Uganda said the campaign dubbed ‘Together against Covid-19’, is supporting government efforts by translating critical public health messages from the Ministry of Health into music and comedy so the messages reach the general public and stick.
According to Martha Chemutai |Communications officer Twaweza East Africa, the fight against COVID-19 is not over until all the members of the public come together and take responsibility for their actions
