President Museveni has ordered police to release all motorcycles impounded for violation of Covid guidelines.
The president said Wednesday night that many motorcycles at police stations were confiscated for violating curfew.
“However, as people of religion sometimes it is good to forgive. These young people have already been punished since they have not been earning after being impounded,” he noted.
“I direct you release these motorcycles. I direct you release them. Let us have an amnesty for these boda boda people,” he said on Wednesday evening.
The president said he had been notified by prime minister Robinah Nabbanja.
He retained curfew at 7pm and ordered boda bodas to stop moving at 6pm.
