Iganga LC 5 Chairperson, Patrick Kayemba is accusing some members of the COVID-19 Taskforce of manipulating his COVID-19 test results to stop him from accessing the President during his visit to the district on Saturday last week.  

Kayemba, who is vying for the Kigulu South Parliamentary seat as an independent is in self-isolation after testing positive for COVID-19 on October 30th, a day to the much anticipated presidential visit to Iganga to commission road construction projects.

He told journalists on Tuesday morning that some of his colleagues concocted the COVID-19 positive results because they didn’t want him to present Iganga's challenges to the president.  

“After knowing that I had objected to their resolution of only showering praises to the president, the task force members connived with health workers to declare me COVID-19 positive," he says.  

Adding that, “I am abiding with the COVID-19 control guidelines as i wait for test results from an independent laboratory.” However, Iganga Resident District Commissioner, Eva Kwesiga, says Kayemba’s COVID-19 test was handled by qualified health workers who cannot be compromised.

Kayemba is running from the Kigulu south parliamentary seat against Milton Muwuma who trounced him in the National Resistance Movement-NRM party primaries.
