COVID-19 | Eddy Kenzo Festival postponed as Museveni bans public gatherings

We shall have to wait for over a month to gather again in public as government places a ban on public gatherings. The much anticipated Eddy Kenzo Festival which was slated for 28th March has been postponed to the effect.

On Wednesday evening, President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni ordered for the closure of schools and suspended religious gatherings across the country in attempt to prevent the spread of Corona Virus.

President Museveni also placed a 32-days ban on all public gatherings in bars, music shows, cinemas, and concerts as a way of controlling the spread of COVID-19.

The merry-making, discos, dances, bars, sports, music shows, cinemas, and concerts. These are very dangerous gathering points with the virus around. Drunkards sit close to one another. They are a danger to themselves. All these are suspended for a month.
