The Kingdom Prime Minister, Dr Joseph Muvawala, warned monarchy officials against writing “speculative letters” to the central government.

“I suggest you write such letters through my office because information (about them) will get to my office, anyway; so to avoid such embarrassment, let such letters pass through my office,” he said.

“So far we have been able to vaccinate 7 million people and by the end of this month, we shall have reached 10 million; I encourage you to go and get vaccinated,” she said.
