A trader in Napier Market in Jinja City has staked Shs500,000 in a bet with a colleague over the ending of lockdown.
Muzafiru is adamant that the government will extend the lockdown in January. He said he only doubted but got fully convinced after Health minister Jane Ruth Aceng pronounced herself on the matter. Another trader who could not be identified staked Shs300,000 in a winner-take-all bet.
After the bet was sealed with the cash surrendered to a third party, Muzafiru explained that the President “takes a lot of pleasure in contradicting his ministers and humiliating them in public.”
“The other day it was the IGG woman and her lfestyle things and now Dr Aceng,” he said. Minister Aceng last week said the economy would be reopened regardless of how the Omicron variant of Covid spreads. To Muzafiru, it means the President will go the opposite side.
