 The Kalungu district security committee has issued guidelines on the operations of bars and lodges in Lukaya town council.  The guidelines are meant to contain the new wave of insecurity in the area.

The new regulations were issued by Abraham Tukundane, the Kalungu District Police Commander at a public security meeting convened in Lukaya Town Council.

According to the regulations, all bars and night club will start operating at 4 pm and close at 2 am.

 All lodge owners will also be required to register their clients using particulars of their National Identification cards. The lodges will also remain open for impromptu inspections by security officers.

Sports betting shops have also strictly been allowed to operate between 3 pm and 10 pm.

Tukundane says the regulations follow the raising cases of robberies and house break-ins in the district. 

He also says that since January police have recorded five murder cases.

Gerald Ssenyondo, the Lukaya Town Council Chairperson says that the regulations are long overdue. He, however, calls for a complete ban to sports betting in Lukaya town council.

//Cue in; “aba betting…..   

Cue out: …..mwena mugendamu.”//.

However, Steven Ssemaganda, a bar owner says it will be appropriate for police to issue them with printed notices of the guidelines for easy enforcement and to avoid clashing with their clients.
