Musician Moses Ssali alias Bebe Cool has appealed to President Museveni to consider relaxing corona virus induced restrictions on bars.
The government on Monday 9th November 2020 announced the reopening of gyms, massage, casinos and gaming centers effective Saturday, November 14.
Singer Moses Ssali has urged the Government to also reopen bars.
According to the Gagamel boss, the players in the entertainment industry can operate with strict adherence to Government standard operating procedures like people in other sectors where restrictions have already been relaxed.
In a sneak peek series of NBS investigates that were carried out in different hangout spots in the hunt for people who violated the presidential restrictions on novel COVID-19 disease and thronged bar to booze during the lockdown.
In the series, NBS TV’S investigative journalist Daniel Lutaaya managed to talk to Bebe Cool in a personal and up close interview to share his opinion about people who used to party during the lockdown and why he believes that bars should be permitted to operate again.
Bebe Cool then noted that the possibility of getting COVID-19 in church is higher than in bars adding that the country has never registered or heard of a drunkard being isolated for COVID.
‘The possibility of getting COVID-19 in bars is less than the possibility of getting COVID in a church, sanitizers are made from alcohol. In bars people are drinking alcohol. Where does COVID-19 attack someone from?’ Bebe Cool said.
The ‘Wire Wire’ singer reasoned that bars should be opened just like was the case with churches.
