The General Public is well appreciated for adhering to the Guidelines put across and emphasized by H.E Yoweri K Museveni and Ministry of Health on how to defeat the corona pandemic. The message has not changed. Stay home stay safe, wash your hands as many times as you can with soap, do not touch your mouth, nose and eyes.
UPDF and other sister security agencies continue to monitor and enforce adherence to strategic Guidelines in a professional manner and in line with the Standard Operating Procedures and Rules of Engagement with support from local leaders and the general public.
Minor cases to the contrary have been tried in courts of Law and are now serving the sentences levied.
However cases of members of the public assaulting, attacking and pelting stones to soldiers and police on patrol have emerged and are therefore strongly condemned accordingly.
Air Force strategic mission and other core tasks especially emergency evacuations can be carried on as when directed by strategic leadership.
