Police warns the public: No fire works and burning of tires
The uganda Police force and other security agencies have banned the use of fireworks, burning tyres and overnight prayers as Ugandans usher in the New Year, 2022.
These have been common rituals on New Year’s Eve, bringing together thousands of revellers from across the country to celebrate the end of the year and welcome the New Year, in style. But in the wake of government restrictions to control the spread of COVID-19, bars, which were often licenced to display fireworks, have officially remained closed, and the country is still under a nighttime curfew that starts at 7 m and runs until 5:30 a.m.
According to the Police spokesperson Mr Fred Enanga,He said that with such restrictions in place, every person is expected to be indoors on New Year’s Eve. He adds that the security agencies will deploy personnel in various places to ensure that no one is walking, driving or operating restricted businesses like bars during curfew time.
However the exact date for the president to address the nation about full reopening of the country is not yet revealed though he received the report today about covid 19 trend .
