The Secretary General of National Resistance Movement (NRM) Hon Justine Kasule Lumumba on Monday evening announced she is going into self isolation after three of her immediate staff members tested positive for covid19
In a statement released on her social media platforms, Lumumba assured party supporters that her isolation would not affect the mobilization and coordination activities of the NRM secretariat
“I have therefore taken advice from our scientists to enter immediately into self-quarantine as a pre cautionary measure while I wait for results of the rapid test I had to take.” Reads part of the statement
The people who tested positive are said to be Lumumba’s handlers whom she has been working with on a daily basis
This is the second time in a few months that the NRM Secretariat has been hit by the virus.
In July this year as the party was conducting nominations for its candidates a number of staff members tested positive, forcing a slowdown in its activities.
