Covidiots: Police Arrest Defiant Ugandans In Bars Watching England Vs Italy Match

The Police on Sunday night raided bars and arrested defiant Ugandans who were boozing as they waited for a football match between Italy and England.

They were arrested in raids at Luzira at Samaki Hub bar and from a floating Island. 

The 37 people, mainly football fans will be charged for flouting the covid19 emergency directives.

They are currently detained at Jinja Road Police and will be arraigned in court on Monday police deputy spokesperson Luke Oweyesigire said in a statement.

The match, a final fete for Euro 2020 ended in a penalty shoot out. Italy emerged with 3 goals against 2 for England after a one goal draw in normal time.

Bars have been closed for nearly two years now after the coming of the covid-19 pandemic.

However, often a time, some bar fanatics decide to forcefully visit these places triggering police raids where many have been detained and charged.
