Yesterday, Museveni excited netizens after he released a work out video in his office as a way of encouraging people to keep fit during the Coronavirus pandemic.
In the less than three-minutes clip, Museveni started by jogging barefoot around the office as he warmed up. He then continued to do 21 press-ups in one go as the press team counted in unison.
“This is just an office and because I don’t have time I do my exercises here,” he said.
Yesterday, I discouraged people who have been jogging in groups, exposing themselves to risk amidst the COVID-19 pandemic. You do not have to go outdoors to exercise. Here is my demonstration of how you can exercise indoors and stay safe. pic.twitter.com/Ulbj6vGOYQ

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.
