The Minister of Gender, Labour and Social Development who also doubles as the MP for Kibale East County Hon. Frank Tumwebaze has advised citizens to create time for activities they have less time for during the COVID-19 lockdown.
The minister made advice through her social media platforms from his country in Kibale, Kamwenge district. He called on the public to stay home as a measure of curbing COVID-19 global pandemic caused by Coronavirus.
“My advice to fellow citizens is that let’s stay home and stay safe. While home, let’s create time for those activities we rarely get time for. Pay detailed attention to your farming activities which all the time we leave to our managers and workers. Check on paddocks, water points, Banana/ coffee plantation, fish ponds, poultry houses, goats to ensure they are dewormed and given water just like cows etc. If you are a trader whose shop is not among the essential trade allowed during this time of lock down and so it’s closed, use the time to balance your records. Review your sales, stock & come up with a balance sheet for your business. This helps you to know if your business is progressing or struggling. Many of our people in our rural trading centres don’t quite do this stock-taking and balancing. Some can’t even know their monthly operational and living expenses. That is how you hear that so & so’s shop collapsed without even knowing the source of problem.
And of course as we do all these let’s add on prayer. Taking off quiet time with our Almighty God to intercede for our lives, families and the country is important,” Hon. Frank Tumwebaze posted.
