Museveni added more guidelines though Ugandans thought that schools will re-open starting on the 4th of June as he had earlier promised, but it was not possible.
When he came to reopening of shopping centers, Museveni allowed only the shopping malls to reopen and left the arcades closed for now. On a close observation, shopping malls are less crowded than arcades. In a mall, a shop is rented by one business person, maybe employing two people. But in the arcades, each shop is sub divided into stalls, sometimes even doors are rented out and each small stall can be owned by two people.
It is high time arcade owners begin to re-organize and make their working environment conducive not only during these COVID 19 crisis, but to suit the modern day shopping standards. Less crowd means, less pick pocketing.
This will however create more space and easy access to every corner by customers willing to buy.
