Uganda Breweries Limited- Corporate Relations Director also emphasized the importance of this campaign with these remarks,

"What we have done today is to secure a stimulus package to ensure a safe return for the workers in this industry who make up 1 million people that have been out of wor for a year" - Juliana Kagwa -

This comes at a time when bars have remained closed for almost a year due to the Covid-19 lockdown. However, Hon. Minister Amelia Kyambadde said that in her capacity as the Chairperson of the Trade and Transport Committee of the COVID-19 Taskforce, she is going to engage my colleagues to deliberate upon the possibility of reopening the bars now that we are assured of the strict adherence of SOPs.

This was received as promising and exciting news by 1000's that miss the fun-packed, long nights powered by a cold bell larger.
