Leaders in Arua district and the City have raised concern about the acts of defiance by night disco operators who continue to flout Covid-19 guidelines.

The concern comes after two people were killed in a spate of two days, while one is still being nursed at Arua hospital in Oluko Sub County. Currently, several night discos continue to operate in the greater Arua in disregard to Covid-19 guidelines.

According to Festus Ayikobua the RDC Arua, security personnel will carry out impromptu operations and impound all disco equipment of those defying the directive. He says the district has continued to register more crimes like theft of animals, house break-ins and sexual offences.

Cue out; pick you during the day.// 

 Statistics from the health department Arua indicates that the district has registered new 50 cases of Covid-19 since May 3, some of which are re-infections and are still under management at the isolation centre in Arua hospital.

According to Paul Drileba, the Acting District Health Officer Arua, the operation of nightclubs continues to offer rich avenues for the spread of the Covid19 virus. 

 // Cue in; Since 3rd of May…

Cue out; Arua is rising.…. //

Hudson Ocheng, the Police Spokesperson for West Nile says plans are underway to crack down on night disco operators, who continue to violate the ban. He also asked members of the public to report criminal activities in their area.  

// Cue in; We have always…

Cue out; that’s their work.//

Some sources intimated to URN that some of the disco operators use bribe security personnel that carry out night patrols especially in the outskirts of Arua City.
