The impact of corona virus is felt in Uganda’s manufacturing sector i speak this because am a manufacture i have a small Workshop that manufactures natural mosquito repellent soap. Closing boarders resulted in supply chain disruptions for manufacturers in Uganda because of depending on imported everything from Beauty soap, clothes, with delays, raw material shortages, increased costs and reduced orders. With the widespread nature of the virus, it is difficult to envisage how supply chains could be adjusted rapidly to meet demands. Who knows Ugandan will start to embrace and continue to support local manufactures and start believing in locally made products For example i have teenage moms who are good at sewing masks but one would prefer masks made in China than Uganda...Hope this becomes a turning point for everyone.
