“Even if the Prime minister allows, she won’t be responsible for removing Covid-19. How do you trust the players playing against each other? Vaccination is also not treatment. With the poverty in our clubs, which one are ready to carryout regular testing so we shouldn’t risk the life of Ugandans.” He stated Mulindwa.
