‘Slay Joggers’ Disappointed As President Museveni Bans Jogging In Public

A new trend of ‘Slay joggers’ pouring out on the roads in the evenings was starting to sweep across Kampala and some parts of the country as the lockdown aimed at curbing the spread of the deadly Coronavirus was taking its toll on some of the impatient Wanainchi who felt suffocate in their homes.

The wave of joggers or rather slayers sweeping across Kampala had reached disturbing proportions as the colorfully dressed joggers who seemed tired of staying home rather than exercising started over crowding on some of the major roads particularly the Northern Bypass.

The invaders usually storm from areas around Najjera, Kamwokya, Naalya, Kireka, Kyaliwajjala, Namugongo and Bweyogerere and usually ended up congregating in Naalaya Roundabout as well as Namboole parking where it climaxed in a party and booze extravaganza with lots of merrymaking being the order of the day.

One of our snoops who confessed to having joined this particular group that hangs out in Namboolevparking yard, described it as a “chilling” and “hookup” rendezvous.

It usually comprises small groups of young curvy ladies dressed up in tight and revealing, sexy sports outfits that are followed around by young men, half dressed with well-chiseled bodies. In some extreme cases, the men go bare-chested to display their six packs and groovy abs.

So, when photos of these so called slay joggers in big groups started making rounds on social media, thevauthorities especially police got concerned because they were in total disregard of the social distancing which has been encouraged as one of the measures to curb the spread of Covid-19.

This information was passed onto the president who is at the forefront of the fight against the virus that is now ravaging the world. After reviewing the incidences on CCTV camera, he agreed it was a dangerous move and decided to officially ban jogging in public during his latest public address last night.

The slayers who were already using this opportunity for networking have been left disappointed because they have to now do exercise from their compounds or in the house.

Using himself as an example, the president says it is possible though it requires some discipline. “I used
to come back late in the night and find Mama Janet (first lady) already sleeping, then I would run from
one room to another” .The president said, to the excitement of the officials who accompanied him at Sate House Nakasero.
