The President of Uganda, Yoweri Museveni, has declared Friday, June 25, 2021, as a one-off public holiday in Uganda, "to enable the country to hold prayers to seek for God's intervention on the pandemic".

The aforementioned declaration states that "The president has used powers given to him under Section 2(2) of the Public Holidays act to declare tomorrow (Friday) a public holiday to enable the country hold prayers to seek for God's intervention on the pandemic".

Recall that, last year (2020-08-27), President Museveni, had similarly declared Saturday, August 29, 2020, as a one-off public holiday in Uganda, to be used as a national day of prayer, in a declaration which stated that "A certain Ugandan came to me and told me that God had told him in a vision that I should organise national prayers, scientifically organised, for God to deliver us from Covid-19".
