President Museveni Sunday said a mask he wore on a trip to Tanzania affected his voice.
Mr Museveni, 76, said he was forced to delegate his vice, Edward Kiwanuka Ssekandi, to an event in Jinja District in eastern Uganda where he was meant to be a guest of honor because he needed time to recuperate from the effects of the facemask.
“Yesterday I was supposed to go to Jinja, I didn’t go because the mask affected my voice. One type of mask affects my voice. When I went to Tanzania I had to put on a very strong one, and when I came back my voice was affected,” Mr Museveni said while addressing Ugandans on what measures government had undertaken to control the spread of Coronavirus.
The President during the Sunday address said although his voice was not back to full health, it had improved greatly.
