Police Arrest Over 2,336 For Violating Covid-19 Guidelines After Easing Lockdown
The police’s latest report indicates that they arrested a total of 2336 persons.
They were apparently flouting curfew and other lockdown guidelines aimed at reducing the spread of the deadly virus.
“Of these, 1624 were cautioned, 206 were released on bond, 59 are pending court, 430 persons were taken to court whereas a total of 696 motor vehicles was impounded, out of which 559 were issued with express penalty system tickets, 137 motorists were cautioned,” Enanga said.
The police spokesperson, Fred Enanga while speaking to journalists, said after the easing of the lockdown, many Ugandans will tend to violate the guidelines that are still in place. Among these include the curfew. He noted security will continue enforcing the guidelines.
“Our message still remains very clear and consistent that let us strictly adhere to the health and safety protocols in place. Since we are not yet at a zero COVID-19 level, our focus remains enforcement of the partial lockdown and curfew.”
Enanga says this time around, they will review these regulations weekly.
“The advantage with the new guidelines is that they will be reviewed on a bi-weekly basis for infection trends. We, therefore urge all the sectors indicated above to appoint managers responsible for implementing the precautionary measures, behavior of their staff and the clientele they serve.”
There is always a tendency for people to relax as time goes by. However, if only the people can work together with the police, then it will get much easier.
From experience, we know that the slightest bend in these directives can lead us back to lockdown.
