About Ugandan Public Holiday

Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni on Thursday declared June 25th 2021 as a public holiday for COVID-19 national prayers as a second wave of the pandemic continues to affect the east African country.

Museveni, in a State House statement, said the day will be observed as a public holiday and the fourth national session for interdenominational prayers as the country battles a rise in the novel coronavirus infections.

The President has used powers given to him under Section 2(2) of the Public Holidays Act to declare the day a public holiday to enable the country hold prayers to seek for God’s intervention in the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.

The national prayers will be held virtually at State House Entebbe, about 40 kilometers south of the capital, Kampala. The leaders of various religious denominations will lead the prayers.

Museveni last week imposed a nationwide total lockdown for 42 days to combat and control the spread of the virus.

The situation can be managed by minimizing the number of infections and giving urgent care for the severely ill, the Ugandan president said.
