Covid19: Police boss arrested, 13 netted in Friends bar & 5 in Nimrod club


Police have raided Friends Bar located in Nakasero and arrested 15 people who flouted COVID-19 guidelines of drinking alcohol during day time without observing social distancing and failure to wear masks.

The operation was carried out Tuesday at midday.

Suspects currently are detained at Central Police Station Kampala on two charges of doing acts that are likely to cause the spread of infectious diseases, disobedience of lawful orders contrary to section 171 and 127 of the Penal Code Act.

Police Political Commissar Asan Kasingye earlier quoted a video taken from Nimrod club in Luwero town.


The proprietor one Lule Tom and his manager Ayikoru Patricia were arrested for flouting COVID-19 regulations.

The video showed revellers drinking and partying hard.

“When I talked of the video having been shot at Nimrod in Luwero, some tweeps doubted my source of information. The OC of Kasana Police Station was arrested. He will tell us how this happened under his nose,” Kasingye explained.

ASP Morius Rutabandama, the officer in charge of Kasana Police Station, was charged with negligence of duty.
