Meanwhile, the Minister Security Minister, General Elly Tumwine has announced that the night-time curfew which was declared by President Yoweri Museveni will remain in force until the head of State communicates otherwise.
Gen. Tumwine had initially announced that the curfew, which runs from 7 pm to 6; 30 a.m., would end today in line with the 21 days that the Head of State announced when he last addressed the country about the measures to control the spread of coronavirus disease on June 1.
However, Tumwine told the press this morning that the curfew has not been lifted yet and regulations will be enforced until the president communicates otherwise.
The Military General`s statements were lauded by the Police Spokesperson, Fred Enanga who said that the curfew was put in place through a Statutory Instrument and that the police will continue implementing the regulations until they receive a contrary order.
ACP Enanga speaking…..
The pronouncement follows views of a cross-section of Uganda found on the streets of Kampala who expressed mixed reactions on the continued implementation of curfew, with some recommending it for partly controlling the actions of thieves in the wee hours of the night, while others say it’s a set back to their businesses among others.
