The Lwengo District Security Committee has warned proprietors of bars, night clubs and events promoters against staging any concerts this Easter holidays. The decision was reached in a joint meeting of different security officials from Uganda Police, Army and Local leaders at different levels.

Miriam Kagaiga Mugisha, the Lwengo Deputy Resident District Commissioner, who chaired the meeting, says the decision is meant to enforce the guidelines by the Health Ministry against the spread of the Coronavirus Disease-Covid19.

Mugisha says that all those found partying and boozing in nightclubs, joints and pubs will be arrested and the businesses closed for good. She explains that business owners or events promoters will be prosecuted in court for the deliberate violation of the ministry’s guidelines.

She further urged all residents in the district to observe the Standard Operation Procedure (SOPs) including washing hands, keeping social distance, and wearing masks during the church services to protect against Covid19.  She appealed to believers to avoid congesting churches and follow the services that will be aired on different radio stations.

She says that they are to intensify operations against animal thieves who tend to take advantage of the festive days to steal people’s cows, goats, pigs and sheep.

Peter Akampulira, the Lwengo District Police Commander, advised all residents to keep their homes safe and to leave someone to watch over their property in case they are to go somewhere. He says that they are to carry out day and night operations during the festive days to arrest those who defy the directives.

According to Akampurira, they are liaising with local leaders and community members to improve their intelligence network during Easter. Mikka Dodoviko, a local bar owner in Mbiriizi town, says that they have resorted to entertaining their clients in their homes to avoid police interference.
