First Night Without Curfew In Two Years But Ugandans Still Obeyed Curfew Time

The president lifted a curfew on Monday for a week in Uganda to allow students report back to school uninterrupted. However, Ugandans seemed to still think they were still under curfew.

Most of them were seen rushing home before 7 pm, a clear indication that they haven’t moved on from their usual time.

Students officially reported to school yesterday as the ministry of education planned. Curfew has been at 7:00 pm and many were no longer living by it. People had created their own curfew time at around 8:00pm.

However, the excitement over the removal of curfew didn’t match what happened at night. By the hour of 8:30pm, the city was almost empty. You could count the people in Kampala.

What does this mean? It looked as though people were tired of curfew but it seems Ugandans got used to being home by 7:00pm.

It may take a long time to go back to the way life was. Two years is not a short time to live by a certain system. Don’t be surprised if even 6 months into having no curfew, people still respect curfew.

Yesterday night was just an image of what covid has done to the minds of people. Perhaps tonight, people will come to terms with the fact that there is no curfew at least for this week.

Meanwhile, schools are registering students as they are slowly returning back. However, some students got shocked to reach their schools closed.

Some schools closed because the proprietors had loans while others became business centers.

The question, therefore, is, how can the government help such students because indeed they need help plus it’s their responsibility? The Ministry of Education should survey to know how many schools are still in the system.
