The First Lady Janet Museveni has tested positive for Covid-19, the President has revealed.

In a document released Thursday afternoon, President Museveni confirmed that the First Lady is under isolation after she was found positive for Covid-19.

According to Museveni, the First Lady feels weak and has constant headaches and a sore throat.

“In the meantime, on Christmas day, after a family lunch, Maama started feeling kukarakaatwa (sandy feeling) in the throat. We did a Rapid Corona test, which was negative. However, we sent another sample to Mbarara for a PCR test and it came back Positive,” Museveni said.

‘Indeed, Maama was feeling weak, with headache sometimes and with the kukarakaatwa. Immediately, on the 26th morning, I had to carry out a test on myself so that we decided to manage the problem. The tests came back negative by afternoon.”

Museveni who is the Rwakitura with the wife now says he will continue with the programs that do not involve the First Lady.

He expressed shock that he was not positive for COVID-19 despite sharing the same space with Janet all this while.

“What is of interest is how I remained negative despite being with Maama all these days- sharing the room, the air-conditioned car to Entebbe and back to Nakasero. Was it because I am emponoka (survivor) of Corona of last May?”

“Maama is now a first-time corona warrior. She is doing well.”
