The government has lifted the curfew which was put in place to curb down the super spread of the corona virus.

The Minister of Works and Transport, Gen Katumba Wamala says there will be no curfew on the days when children are going back to school.

General Katumba who was addressing a press conference at the Government Media Center said this would enable children and parents to travel to the different parts of the country without any hindrances.

As parents take their children back to school, all individuals and motorists except Boda Bodas are free to move without hindrances from police and other security forces on the road.

In an agreement with the Prime Minister, the ministry has suspended Curfew during the week when students will be returning to school to ease the movement of parents and public transport operators.

‘We have agreed with the Prime Minister, Robinah Nabbanja, that during the week of return of students, there will be no curfew hours.’

The ministers said this move was meant to aid in the movement and reduce over speeding on the roads as parents try to beat curfew.

“You may find a parent has driven to Ntare School or Mwiri College and maybe for one reason or another he has delayed there and he is coming back late and he is faced with a curfew and is rushing back. To avoid that, the curfew has been lifted,” Katumba said.

The curfew will be reinstated at the end of the week as the full reopening of the economy is awaited two weeks after students report to school.
