The President of Uganda, Yoweri K. Museveni, on Friday, said he was misunderstood when he order Ugandans to stay at home in order to curtail the spread of the coronavirus pandemic in the country.

“When I said people should stay home. I did not mean you should be confined indoors,” the President said in a tweet.

He tweeted:

“I think I was misunderstood when I said people should stay home. I did not mean you should be confined indoors. You are allowed to enjoy your compound if it’s hot or even go to the latrine outside. Besides most of our homes don’t have toilets inside. #M7Address #Covid-19.”
