NTV Uganda news anchor Faridah Nakazibwe is ready to become an informant of police and other authorities responsible for enforcing the Covid-19 guidelines.
With the second wave of COVID-19 sweeping across the country, new guidelines were passed by president Yoweri Museveni to curb on the spread of the disease.
Bars were to remain closed and public gatherings to be conducted in strict observance of Standard Operating Procedures for 42 days starting Monday 7th June, 2021.
The passed guidelines, however, seem to have fallen on a few deaf ears and as early as Wednesday, bar owners had opened bars for revellers to party.
Operations made by police led to arrests being made around the popular hangouts especially in Kamwokya and Ntinda.
Upon observing the situation, renown media personality Faridah Nakazibwe has decided to take it upon herself to ensure some of these guidelines are enforced.
Through Twitter, the NTV journalist vowed to report whichever bar she finds operating. She notes that she will also supervise the raids made by police.
Starting tomorrow, if I pass by your bar on my way home and there are signs it’s open to drunkards, I will not stop at alerting the police, I will personally supervise the raid.Faridah Nakazibwe
Nakazibwe is not the only person who has taken it upon themselves to report those flouting Covid-19 guidelines.
Police has often swung in action in recent times to make similar arrests after being tipped off by civilians.
