President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni has clarified on his earlier guidelines regarding how to lift Coronavirus restrictions with Kasese, Bundibugyo and Rubirizi districts being some of the forty that will not be allowed on June 4th to operate private and public transport.
On Monday this week, President allowed shops that sell nonfood items and private cars to resume operations but did not say whether they should also wait for the distribution of government face masks like public vehicles.
In his last evening brief clarification at State House Nakasero, Mr. Museveni said all those entities allowed to resume operations should do so on May 26th for hotels, restaurant, shops and private cars, and on June 4th for public vehicles.
The President however said that forty border districts including Kasese, Bundibugyo and Rubirizi shall not allow for private or public transport for being on the frontline and the fact that the LCs who are another force against infiltrators who can come out jump on vehicles to the capital city and other areas will be beaten.

He however said that the Prime Minister who is the head of the National Taskforce will discuss with transporters first on how the sector is going to run before it’s opened up.
For education institutions whose finalists, P7, S4 and S6 students and those in their final years in Universities and tertiary institutions will be allowed to resume school, Museveni said, the ministry of education is to use these two weeks to agree on a plan that will be followed.
Last evening’s address which took slightly an hour has been Museveni’s shortest of his 15 speeches to the country during this COVID-19 time. END
