Ugandan Govt Set To Buy 10 Million Radio Sets For Homes
The Ugandan government has concluded plans to provide at least 10 million radio sets to every household and 137,466 solar-powered television sets to villages in Uganda as the country awaits guidelines for holding the 2021 General Election.
The meeting resolved to keep all schools shut but virtual learning must continue as government monitors the Covid-19 curve.
In the meeting, Foreign Affairs minister Sam Kutesa asked President Museveni to announce a dead year for all educational institutions as a drastic measure to keep learners safe.
While the planned distribution of free radios and TV sets was never intended to assist virtual political campaigns but ease access to distance learning and teaching across Uganda, sources in Cabinet talked of “killing two birds with one stone”.
The reference to “two birds” embodies the debate on the anticipated virtual political campaigns ahead of the February polls.
