Security in Kasese has partnered with Kasese Municipal Council to tighten the Standard Operating Procedures to curtail the spread of Covid-19.

  • On Tuesday, they joined hands and mounted an operation against the spread of Covid-19.

The operation that started at 10:00am involved Police, UPDF, Kasese Municipal staff and journalists.

Speaking to the press shortly after the operation, the Rwenzori East Regional Police Spokesperson, ASP Nelson Tumushime described the exercise as a reminder to the people to continue observing the SOPs since the public has become reluctant.

According to Tumushime, Kasese being a border district is at high risk of being hit by the third wave of the deadly Covid-19 if the people do not adhere to the guidelines put in place by the Ministry of Health.

He also added that as security, they would move ahead with the operation across the district and arrest whoever would be found defying the SOPs.

A section of residents many of whom being traders in Kasese town, hailed the combined team for sensitizing and reminding the community about the need to observe the SOPs arguing that many people had become irresponsible towards preventing the spread of the pandemic.

At most market centres including Kizungu and Mawa, there were no functional hand washing facilities.

One of the traders who preferred anonymity explained to the team that they lack money and time to refill the hand-washing facilities.
