Covid-19 Relief Beneficiaries To Start Receiving Cash On Wednesday

Prime Minister- Robinah Nabbanja

The Prime Minister of Uganda, Rt. Hon. Robinah Nabbanja has revealed that starting Wednesday this week, Ugandans will start receiving the Covid-19 relief cash as the preparations to sort out the intended beneficiaries are in their final stages.

Nabbanja made the remarks on Sunday during the scientific mass at Namirembe Cathedral in Kampala.

She noted that her office is aware of the difficulties being faced by the people due to lockdown but asked for patience for they are working around the clock to ensure that the relief cash is distributed as soon as possible

She said that local leaders in their different localities were in the final stages of compiling the list of beneficiaries. Once this is finished, the ministry will begin the digital transmission of the cash to the recipients.

She also appealed to the public to continue observing the ministry of Health Standard Operating Procedures as the only way the deadly disease will be kicked out of the country

She also showered the country’s health workers with special praise for their commendable service to the country in managing the pandemic. She revealed that during her previous experience as State Minister for Health, she learned that only as few as 1% of hospital covid-19 admissions die of the disease thanks to the efficient work by the health workers.

Early last month, President Yoweri Museveni announced a 42-day complete lockdown. Through the Office of the Prime Minister, a relief package of shs100,000 was passed to be extended to vulnerable Ugandans through mobile money and cash but there have been delays due to the process to verify the intended beneficiaries of the relief.
