The public is further encouraged to disregard misinformation and allegations against the Government of Uganda in regard to services that are being provided during this period. The Ministry of Health continues to avail itself to anyone including Bad Black for any service, or consultation regarding provision of Health Services in the country.
The messages sent out by Bad Black tantamount to blackmail since no contractual obligations were made between herself and government.
In its routine work and particularly during epidemic response, the Ministry of Health represents transparency, accountability and integrity. Allegations from individuals with malicious intentions should not derail health workers and partners from the relentless work and should ensure that we win the war against COVID-19. This should not erode the goodwill of the public who continue to lend a hand in this fight.
As the Ministry of Health, we promise to provide facts, be open and honest in our communication and remain committed to the communities we are serving.
