Police to intensify Curfew time operation

Police has said they will intensify their operation and enforcement of curfew time.

According to police, the suspects will be charged under section 117 of the PCA for negligent acts likely to spread an infectious disease (Covid-19) and disobedience of lawful orders.

“The curfew enforcement will continue this week, with penalties for those found breaching the rules, including charging them under section 117 of the PCA for negligent acts likely to spread an infectious disease and disobedience of lawful orders,” police spokesperson, Fred Enanga told journalists in Kampala on Monday.

CP Enanga’s statement comes after police leadership directed all regional commanders in the country to intensify their operations in enforcement of Covid-19 regulations.

The director of operations, AIGP Edward Ochom sent a message to all police units and shared concerns that security operatives were not doing enough to implement the presidential directives to control the spread of the virus which has so far infected 40,357 Ugandans with 334 deaths confirmed by Ministry of Health.

Mr. Ochom warned that security officers would be punished if they relaxed the enforcement of health guidelines.
