Police has resounded a warning to bars, clubs and sauna owners against hosting people during the lockdown.
Addressing journalists at the Uganda Media Center today, the Criminal Investigations Directorate spokesperson Charles Twine said those who will be in such places shall be charged with attempted suicide while the bar or sauna owner will be charged with aiding suicide.
Following the outbreak of Covid-19, the government in March this year ordered closure of bars, saunas among other businesses as a measure to prevent spread of corona virus.
In his last address to the nation, the President lifted some of the restrictions but maintained the closure of bars saying Ugandans who like getting drunk should do so from their homes.
But the beer companies are crying foul over this continued closure of bars saying it is bushing them out of business.
They have asked government to re-open bars and task them to follow the same Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) issued to other business sectors which have re-opened. ENDS
