Speaker of Parliament Rebecca Kadaga has all the reasons to fear after her close contact tested positive for COVID-19.
Amanda Ngabirano, the acting Chairperson of National Physical Planning Board on Monday confirmed that she had tested positive for deadly virus that has so far killed over 20 people in the country with over 2,000 cases.
"My sense of smell is back. Now I can enjoy my fish. However I tested positive for COVID-19. I don't know how we shall survive this virus! It's allover I guess. So my dear contacts, please make sure to test and protect your family, friends & workmates. Friends, the THING IS REAL!!" Ngaribano tweeted.
About two weeks ago, Ngabirano was in contact with Speaker Kadaga during the inauguration ceremony of the new Soroti City.
The two were snapped exchanging pleasantries at zero distance while Kadaga had her arm wrapped around Ngaribano.
However, both Kadaga and Ngaribano were wearing their face masks.
If the Ministry of Health is to trace all Ngabirano's contacts for the last two weeks then Speaker Kadaga could also be rounded up for isolation and testing.
Other bigwigs who mingled with Ngabirano during the inauguration of Soroti City are; Local Government Minister Raphael Magyezi, Soroti Municipality MP Herbert Ariko, NRM Vice chairperson for Eastern region, Capt Mike Mukula etc.
