Government has yet again postponed the launch of the Shs 100,000 covid-19 relief cash to all vulnerable persons affected by shocks of the second wave of the virus until next week.

This means that the exercise that was purposed to kick off tomorrow (Thursday, July 8) will be delayed for another extra seven days for proper scrutiny of the collected information collected on the beneficiaries.

The announcement was made Wednesday by the State Minister for Gender, Mr. Sam Engola who argued that the delay would be to allow government sufficiently comb through the gathered data and ably verify it for transparency purposes.

“To create transparency in what we are doing, after collecting all these data which will take one week from now, we shall have all the data we need. So after one week, we shall display all this data. This will be before the payment,” Col Engola told legislators on the Parliamentary Covid taskforce.
