Security agencies have said they will arrest any body who will be found moving past 7:00 pm starting tonight.
This was revealed by Minister of Information and Technology Hon Judith Nabakooba while addressing the media at Media Center in Kampala.
Hon Nabakooba was accompanied by all spokespersons from Army,Police and Prisons.
Richard Karemire UPDF spokesperson says they have deployed army and LDU on roads to make sure no movement is allowed past 7:00 pm.
“We must ensure the presidential directive of restricting movement past 7:00pm so we don’t expect people on foot, bodabodas and private motor vehicles after curfew,” says Karemire.
“There will be patrols by security agents. We will continue to be as humane as possible. Our prayer is that we all adhere to this lockdown.” He added.
Police spokesman Fred Enanga urged the public to live work early so that they can beat curfew time.
“Those going on foot, better start your journey when there is daylight. 7pm is fast approaching. Lets work in Unison, we will push this virus out faster.Those working with night shift operations, have arrangements for your workers so they don’t move late at night.”
Frank Baine the Uganda prisons spokesman also warned the public not to test the security forces.
“Time comes and you make decisions to save you, your nation and the world. Do not try to test the capability of the security forces with the curfew that begins at 7pm. Please make sure 7pm you are off the road and are at home.” He said.
