Students Still Stuck In Kampala With Lockdown Only A Day Away

Up until now, students are still stuck in Kampala waiting for means of going back to their homes. Yesterday, the police promised to provide buses to these students so that they go back home. This was after they received information that bus owners hiked the prices. Buses and taxis had not only doubled but tripled the transport fares.

Most of the students have been in the parks since Monday when they set off from their schools. This followed the directive of the president to close schools for 42 days. He gave only up to 10th for interdistrict movement.

After 10th June, it is going to be illegal for any car to cross districts. This caused a lot of panic among people who decided to run to villages causing high demand for buses.

The question is, aren’t we running towards what we are running away from. These students who have stayed in the park for close to three days now, how sure are we, they are not contracting the virus.

Aren’t numbers of covid victims in villages going to shoot? When you see how packed the park is, you will just conclude with a huge number of cases.

Meanwhile, the priority is to make sure students reach home safe and sound. Otherwise, we will not only be dealing with the virus but also some other problems.

For example, girls are at risk of being raped because they are sleeping out with no security at that. More to this, tomorrow is the deadline for travelling which makes things more tricky now.
