President Yoweri Museveni will on Thursday reportedly post a video of himself working out to demonstrate to Ugandans how to exercise indoors amid the coronavirus outbreak.

President Museveni, in a statement on Wednesday, said that despite instituting a countrywide lockdown last week, he had seen a video of citizens jogging on one of the country’s main highways.

However, according to the Ugandan Head of State, this is absolutely unnecessary as it is perfectly possible to exercise indoors during this period when people are advised to stay at home following the Covid-19 pandemic.

“I saw a video of so many people on the Northern bypass walking and running around that they are exercising. This should stop,” he wrote.

“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.”

Museveni also urged landlords not to evict their tenants due to rent but to, instead, demand the money later when the Covid-19 disease has been contained.

He further urged the country’s security officers to stop “beating people”, especially medical professionals, while enforcing the lockdown rules.
