First Lady and Minister for Education and Sports, Mrs Janet Museveni has spoken out over President Yoweri Museveni’s health.
She says the First Family is not afraid and has thanked the country for standing with them.
Her remarks follow a revelation that the President is suffering from COVID-19 after he tested positive of the virus on Wednesday and as a result, decided to self-isolate at State House Nakasero.
“Therefore, I only need to say “Thank you” to all of you who are kind and gracious enough to stand with us in this season,” Mrs Museveni said.
The President had also said that one of the three COVID-19 tests he undertook had turned out positive with the virus and to this, he said he had avoided sharing the same vehicle with the First Lady as he went for the State of the Nation Address at Kololo in Kampala.
The First Lady tweeted on Friday thanking Ugandans for standing in with the President in prayer, saying he will triumph in the end.
“Bishops, pastors, brothers, sisters in Christ, men and women of God, Today, the Lord leads me to thank you for your prayers for the health of the President, myself and our entire family.
“Thank you for standing in the gap, especially for your President, because the enemy, who has never known that he was defeated at the cross when Jesus said “it is finished,” is still trying to harm the servant of God,” Mrs Museveni tweeted.
She, however, noted that the devil will not succeed, adding that the country should stand strong and whole forever.
“We are not afraid because we know that with God on our side, we will indeed triumph. A happy Heroes’ Day to you all. May the God of Grace continue to bless you, bless Uganda, and use all of you for His glory,” Mrs Museveni said.
