It’s Illegal To Deny Unvaccinated People Access To Public Places – DP

Democratic Party, DP has said that it is illegal to deny unvaccinated people access to public places. Apparently, there is no legal framework to back this move.

Luyimbazi Nalukoola, DP national legal advisor said that if government intends to use this strategy to encourage people to take up vaccination, then they should seek to back it up with the law.

“The Democratic Party demands that government institutions prioritize the law as it is, as opposed to how it ought to be which has misinformed their actions,” Nalukoola said.

Nalukoola said this while addressing the media at the DP weekly presser. A number of public offices have restricted access to their space to only vaccinated people.

Among these places with restricted access include National Medical Stores, National Drug Authority, Ministry of Health, among others.

Parliament, too, announced last week that they were to restrict sittings to only vaccinated MPs. Nalukoola however says, as DP, they condemn this move by the government.

“That action and or desires is unconstitutional, illegal, alien, and therefore null and void,” Nalukoola added.

According to the Heath Ministry, at least 3 million people have so far been vaccinated with their first dose. DP may be having a point but it doesn’t look like anything will change.

None of the places that have denied access to unvaccinated people are willing to change their stand on this.
