KAMPALA — President Yoweri Museveni has clarified on the ongoing curfew, which took effect this evening.
He said the restriction of movement starts at 7pm and lasts until 6:30am the following morning.
On diplomatic vehicles, Museveni said that these are okay to move, as they are clearly marked. But their destinations should be supermarkets and hospitals and then back to their residences.
Another issue that was raised to the President is on protective gear by workers in critical sectors, such as health.
Museveni said he got an update from the health ministry’s permanent secretary Dr. Diana Atwine.
Museveni says he wants the information from the PS to be “clearly in writing”, as he wants to know the source and quantity.
“We learn that options are being explored to have protective gear imported and assures Ugandans not to worry, that “we are going to import gear in big numbers”.
The issue of sanitizers will also be solved internally, he adds.
