Bars are expected to start working on Monday after closure for a period of two years. The president closed entertainment centers in March 2020 at the height of Covid-19. Since then, bar owners have been crying out to the government to help them out financially because they had no source of income.
The government came up with some strategies to help them, that is giving out food, money among others.
Obviously, these helped but only for a moment and the poverty cycle went on and on. Some bar owners decided to become creative.
If you move around Kampala you will realize most bars became restaurants, cafes, wholesale shops among others. This is because they couldn’t sit home doing nothing and yet life had to move.
However, some bars have patiently waited while others have been operating illegally.
If you moved around, you would realize, bars are preparing to open up. Cleaning is going on, furnishing and more. It’s not just the bar owners that are happy but also the people who love having fun.
However, the president said following SOPs is still a mandate otherwise they risk being shut down again.
Meanwhile, it’s not just the bars that are opening, concerts too will start operating on 24th and this comes with total lift of curfew that has been on for a long time.
