The Uganda Police Force has said that all those who will be organizing parties during this Christmas period risk being arrested as they move to contain the further spread of #Covid-19.
Patrick Onyango, the Kampala Metropolitan police spokesperson said they have read, listened and seen several advertisements both online and traditional media advertising parties in different places like hotels, beaches and other open arenas.
“Ministry of Health guidelines still stand and the COVID19 instruments: The Public Health (Control of COVID-19) rules, 2020, that was put in place to fight the spread of Coronavirus is still in operation,” Onyango said in part of the statement.
“We want to warn the organisers of these parties to desist from breaking the law and stop advertising for the events. We appeal to members of the public to report to us any party or event that breaches the Coronavirus regulations.”
According to Onyango, they warn any person that will attend such events that he or she will be arrested for breaching the laws.
