Owners of bars and recreational facilities in Luwero town council are counting losses after failing to organize the end of year shows due to the COVID 19 pandemic.

Every end of the year, revellers flock bars and recreational facilities in big numbers to celebrate usher in the new year. Usually, the bars and other recreational facilities organize shows where artists perform, fireworks lit and sell drinks to revellers where they earn huge amount of money.

However today most bars and other recreational facilities remain under lock after President Museveni imposed a national curfew starting from 9; 00 pm-5:30 am.

Violet Nansasi Kasasa the Manager of Biva Hotel in Luwero the town council says that she would have stocked over 50 crates of beer for sale on 31st December and New Year days.

Nansasi, however, says today the place is under lock and key and has sent over 10 workers sent home. She decried of huge losses made since the ban was effective in march leaving them crying foul.
