The Joint Security Task Force has warned Ugandans who have started opening shops illegally and others who have gone back to the streets yet they are selling non-essential goods, to stop with immediate effect or be arrested.
According to the police spokesperson Fred Enanga, cameras have captured such people, warning that they should leave in peace, or be dealt with.
Meanwhile, the police in Kampala Metropolitan area has impounded 125 and 57 motorcycles. The cars were found with fake stickers alleged to have been received from Ministry of health.
According to Enanga, an ISO operative Ariong Steven was arrested together with a Pakistani national Sabil Ali for making and selling fake stickers at an amount of UGX150,000 to 300,000. The stickers were allegedly faked and mixed with those of ministry of health.
