According to the head of State, no one should be arrested for being idle and disorderly and all those already apprehended should be released with immediate effect and legal proceedings against them must be stopped.
The Inspector General of Police Mr Okoth Ochola Martin has officially ordered all regional police commanders and directors to act in accordance with president Museveni’s order regarding the above subject matter.
The IGP Mr Okoth continued and said that president Museveni also ordered all people apprehended by KCCA enforcement team within Kampala City and are already in jail for failure to meet the penalty of one million Ugandan shillings to be released with immediate effect but to stand warned never to repeat the same offense for selling goods on the footpath.
The IGP also asked the Executive Director of KCCA to comply with president Museveni’s directive.
