Big Blow: Our Bananas, Cattle And Fish Are Still Growing With Out Facebook- Museveni
President Museveni has said Uganda can do without facebook noting that the country has not had any negaive effect consqunces since its closure in january this year.
“The other day I checked to see whether bananas are still being produced. I thought bananas would stop if Facebook closed. I checked and I found cows are still milking and fish is still in the lake,” Museveni said on Wednesday.
“We can exist without Facebook. Those biased people should not bother us.”
Museveni made the remarks on Wednesday while speaking at a function to welcome the Ugandan team that participated in the just-concluded Olympics 2020 games in Tokyo.
According to Museveni, Facebook which was shut down in Uganda ahead of the January 14 polls has not had any effect on the country since then.
Museveni noted that the country can ably function without Facebook, in comments that many have interpreted to indicate that the ban slapped on the social media platform by the Ugandan government will take longer to be lifted.
Ugandans access Facebook through Virtual Private Networks(VPNs) after the shutdown of the social media platform in the country.
