Jane Aceng denies vaccination of Museveni’s inner circle

For few days, according to rumors, the inner circle of the Ugandan president Yoweri Museveni would have been immunized against the coronavirus pandemic.

The Ugandan health minister Jane Aceng in a Tweet denied reports that top government officials have been vaccinated against Covid-19 before the country formally receives vaccines.

Minister Jane Aceng was in fact reacting to a report by local newspaper Daily Monitor and American newspaper Wall Street Journal. She said in the Tweet that the President nor his collaborators have been vaccinated as alleged.

” I want to categorically state that neither President Museveni nor his inner circle have been vaccinated against Covid-19,” she said.
