A day before, Museveni had banned exercising in public as a precautionary measure to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

This was after different videos and pictures were circulated capturing people working out in groups and disobeying the social distance directive despite the country being on lockdown.

“I saw a video of so many people on the Northern bypass walking and running around that they are exercising. This should stop. If you want to exercise, you can do that indoors. I will show you how it is done tomorrow. I will do a video for you,” he tweeted on Wednesday.
