The Uganda Police Spokesperson Fred Enanga in a presser earlier today, said they have observed continued violations of Standard Operating Procedures and effective today, they are going to tighten operations against violators.
“We have realized a blatant disregard to the Covid guidelines and SOPs where you find many pedestrians on the road past the 7pm curfew time, boda bodas moving past 6pm whereas others having more than one passenger. Motor vehicles also move past curfew time. Our territorial commander have been asked to step up operations to arrest the violators of the SOPs and guidelines. Our territorial commanders have been directed to intensify joint operations against offenders.
We impounded 837 vehicles, Express Penalty System tickets issued to 590 motor vehicles and 247 drivers cautioned whereas 3228 motorcycles including boda bodas were impounded.” said Enanga
