Covid19: Trade Minister Kyambadde Called to Reign in On Price Hikes

Local Musician Moses Ssali aka Bebe Cool has asked the Minster of Trade, Industry and Cooperatives Hon Amelia Kyambadde to put in place measures to protect Ugandans against traders who have started hiking prices of almost all commodities.

“Madam you need to issue a directive to traders not to abnormally increase prices of commodities most especially foodstuffs and household commodities because this will directly hit the common man who is not earning a penny at the moment because most Ugandans live from hand to mouth,” the singer urged.

Currently many of the traders have started hiking prices of exported products especially goods from China with reasons that the demand is high but they can no longer bring in more goods due to the Coronavirus threat.

Government has since warned that the economic situation is get worse in the coming weeks, as more travel restrictions take effect around the world.
