Entebbe Deputy Resident District Commissioner Njuki Mbabali says that incoming and outgoing passengers will be exempted from night curfew restrictions if their flights fall within the curfew hours.
Uganda maintains a nighttime curfew running from 9 pm to 6:30 a. m, as one of the measures taken by the government to control movement and person to person interactions.
Mr. Njuki told the media that as Entebbe International Airport reopens, some flights could require passengers to move during curfew time, giving an example of Turkish Airlines, the first commercial flight to the airport yesterday that arrived at 3 a.m. and departed with some passengers at 4:50 am. Police spokesperson Fred Enanga says that the stop and search security teams along the Kampala-Entebbe Highway will work in partnership with Uganda Civil Aviation Authority and Aviation Police to ensure that only affected passengers move during the curfew.
