President Yoweri Museveni said that once he gets wind of any suppliers hoarding food in the hope of making profits later, the government will move to import the food instead.
“I don’t like selfish people. If I hear that there is not enough
maize or beans because people are hoarding from the market, then we
shall import – and forget about you! Because you want to kill your
brothers, you are crooks!”.
“So please, no games!” the President warned.
Mr. Museveni who was addressing the country on Sunday April 19 night, also warned motorists flouting lockdown guidelines, and those that have bribed to get car stickers.
“Those vehicles will be confiscated,” warned the President adding that “after all of this, we shall see what to do with them legally.”
