Mityana Municipality MP Francis Zaake has been arrested and detained for distributing relief food to locals in his constituency contrary to the presidential directives.
According to Police spokesperson, Fred Enanga, Zaake disobeyed lawful orders by negligently distributing relief food which could have led to spread of the deadly coronavirus infection.
The police publicist said there are protocols and guidelines set by the national task force to facilitate donation of quality food items, fit for human consumption, by having it certified by the UNBS.
He said that Zaake flouted all these guidelines leading to his arrest.
President Museveni last month warned that politicians found distributing relief food against the guidelines by government will face attempted murder charges and thrown into prison. ENDS
