President Yoweri Museveni has once again attacked what he usually refers to as “the enemy paper” for publishing an article alleging that him and his inner circle were secretly vaccinated.
Quoting an American newspaper, The Wall Street Journal, Daily Monitor on February 23, reported that people close to President Museveni reportedly received jabs of China’s Sinopharm Covid-19 vaccine months ahead of health workers and other vulnerable groups.
“Members of President Yoweri Museveni’s inner circle were offered vaccines from China state-owned drugmaker Sinopharm.” Daily Monitor’s story read in parts.
Reacting to what he dismissed as lies, Museveni on Monday while addressing the nation at State House as the country commemorates World Women’s Day said he will make good money from Daily Monitor.
“I am going to make some money from Daily Monitor. They lied that I had been vaccinated together with my wife,” he said.
He added that unless Daily Monitor apologises and lies down he will squeeze into bankruptcy.
“I am going to make them bankrupt unless they apologize and lie down. Ssabalwanyi doesn’t act like that,” he said.
The Ministry of Health came out to refute Daily Monitor’s story saying no person in Uganda had received any COVID-19 jabs.
The country received its first doses of 864,000 AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine last Friday.
The Ministry said the vaccine will cater for all frontline workers first.
