In March last year, President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni closed all places of social gatherings including bars to contain the spread of COVID-19. 

However, the Director of Operations in the Uganda Police Force, Edward Ochom, has severally accused police stations of shielding bars within their areas of jurisdiction to continue operating in violation of the COVID-19 directives.

On Monday, police pinned the officers at Nateete police station for conniving with bar owners to operate illegally. 

Police Spokesperson, Fred Enanga, says the Professional Standards Unit –PSU is under instructions to reign in on the errant officers.
