Minister Amongi gives update about the relief money as deadline nears.
Over Ugshs. 14bn has so far been sent to 140,000 vulnerable Ugandans, out of the 370,000 verified ones, according to minister Hon. Betty Amongi. At the beginning of the lockdown, about 500,000 Ugandans were expected to receive relief aid of Ugshs. 100,000 each, to help them through the lockdown.
The number seemed to be very small according to different people. On Thursday last week, the prime minister of Uganda Rt. Hon. Robbinah Nabbanja oversaw the commencement of the money sending.
Since then, various people have come out to testify that they received the money while many still wait in vain. Today, minister Amongi gave an update on the progress of the activity, where she gave figures.
The minister also said that the activity is expected to end tomorrow, 14th/July/2021. About 37 municipalities have so far recieved money, these include Nansana, Kawempe, Mityana among others.
She also noted that they'll try to ask the prime minister for more time, incase need arises. This has left a bunch of Ugandans puzzled because according to them, the ratio of those who've recieved is extremely low compared to those who've not yet received.
Have you received the 'Nabbanja'money or you're still washing your hands and keeping social distance?
