Uganda’s trade minister and also Mawokota member of Parliament Amelia Kyambadde has ordered for the close of all malls and arcades in the country.This comes barely a week after she said there is no reason for the arcades to close and that work should go on.This was in response to police brutality meted out on civilians who had gone to work a day after the president ordered taxis to close business.
I had wanted that our people continue working but the rate of the spread of the disease is worrying. Life is more precious than anything else. So all shopping malls should be closed with immediate effect,” Trade Minister Amelia Kyambadde said.
The Corona virus seems to be talking its toll on Ugandans as a partial lock down of the country continues to bite hard.
