Uganda’s President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni has declared tomorrow June 25th 2021 a public holiday.
This came after Uganda experiencing the second wave of Covid19 that has finally put them under total lockdown for the second time.
President Museveni said tomorrow will be a public holiday and also a day for the 4th National Prayer Session for interdenominational prayer as Uganda battles a rise in Corona virus infections.
“Friday will be a public holiday to enable the whole country to hold prayers to seek God’s intervention in the on going covid19 pandemic.”
According to the document released from State House the prayers will be held at State House Entebbe at mid day but the leaders of various religious denominations will lead prayers through zoom.
Pastor Robert Kayanja will represent the born again Christians, seventh Adventists Uganda Union, Kireka hill, Lubaga Cathedral, St Nicholas Cathedral Namungoona for the orthodox, All saints Cathedral Nakasero for protestants and Gadhafi National Mosque, old kampala for the muslims faith.
This is nit the first time President Museveni declares a public holiday for prayers, even last year he did when Uganda experienced the first lockdown in March 2020.
