KAMPALA-The Joint Security Task Force has arrested two people driving with forged movement stickers.
According to Kampala Metropolitan Police Spokesperson SP Patrick Onyango, the drivers have been identified as Besigye Denis driving motor vehicle registration number UBB 721K and Luswata Nasif cruising car number UBE 599S.
“Their vehicles are currently parked at Police Headquarters, Naguru. We have preferred charges of forgery and impersonation against Besigye and Luswata,”he said in a statement.
He added that security forces will continue carrying out operations to arrest and impound vehicles that are on the road without authorized movement stickers.
“We appeal to members of the public not to be tempted to acquire forged stickers because our officers are on the lookout for such forgeries,” Onyango noted.
On Friday April 17,2020, sections of the media reported that some car stickers were going for sale for as low as Shs200,000 each.
Police spokesman Fred Enanga on Friday said the Operation shall continue for the next 18 days of the curfew and partial lockdown.
“We expect to handover all impounded motor vehicles once the partial lockdown is lifted. We would also like to also use this opportunity to inform all shop owners dealing in non essential items, and all those persons violating the ban on public gatherings and proper hygiene that their behaviors risk the safety of all Ugandans including their families,” he said.
