KAMPALA – Police Spokesperson CP Fred Enanga has on Friday warned that non essential travel, which had increased the flow of traffic on major roads and highways despite the ban on public and private transport, will be voted by the security personnel.
Mr. Enanga, in a statement dated April 17 noted that the public should know that the restrictions announced by the President and the Ministry of Health were clear and permitted movement of vehicles under very essential and exceptional circumstances.
“As a result, our enforcement teams shall be stepping up patrols along various routes and intensifying screening processes at all check points to counter all forms of movements that are not essential during this period,” Mr. Enanga said.
He added that all motorists whose stickers are not linked to that particular category and those that are forged will be withdrawn and vehicles impounded.
“Those who fail to comply will definitely have their travel plans disrupted amidst other probable sanctions,” reads an excerpt.
According to Mr Enanga, the operation shall continue for the next 18 days of the curfew and partial lockdown.
He said they expect to handover all impounded motor vehicles once the partial lockdown is lifted.
Mr Enanga also warned shop owners shop dealing in non essential items, and all persons violating the presidential directives that they risk the safety of all Ugandans.
“Our task teams shall not tolerate all acts of none compliance to the directives and guidelines on health and safety,” he said.
