Tibayeita, the Managing Director at African Queen said, “Our partners have heard the plea of our President H.E Yoweri Kaguta Museveni on offering support to the COVID-19 Task Force that has been mandated to not only lead the fight against the COVID-19 virus but also ensure proper distribution of food to those families that have been greatly affected during this time.”
