‘’We have read, listened, and seen several advertisements both online and traditional media advertising parties in different places like hotels, beaches, and other open arenas. Please don’t organize them,’’ Onyango said in a statement released on Thursday.
The KMP spokesperson also said the Ministry of Health guidelines and SOPs on Covid-19 still stand. The government put in place the Public Health – Control of Covid-19 rules which are still very strong. Furthermore, he strongly warned the organizers of parties to desist from breaking the law. He also urged them to stop advertising these parties that are misleading citizens in this festive season.
Onyango also appealed to members of the general public to report any party or event that breaches the Covid-19 regulations.
The announcement comes as Uganda fights to stay ahead of the deadly coronavirus; however, it seems to be the opposite of that. According to current updates, Uganda has registered over 27,766 cases of Covid-19 and over 224 cases of related deaths. And only about 9,826 of those have recovered.
In the past month, numbers of Covid-19 infections tripled and the ministry also registered suspicious deaths. Therefore, the police sends a message of caution to people planning to travel back to villages to celebrate the festivities with their families. The police urges citizens to be responsible.
