Rugunda summoned over night-time curfew

The Prime Minister, Dr Ruhakana Rugunda has been summoned to the Parliament by Speaker Rebecca Kadaga to explain the continued imposition of the night curfew which was instituted last year to curb the spread of Covid-19.

Kadaga’s decision to summon Rugunda came after Kawempe North legislator Latif Ssebagala informed the House that Muslims are likely to find difficulties during curfew time when the holy month starts in few days time.

Ssebagala said the curfew which is enforced starting 9.00PM will inconvenience Muslims during Ramadhan especially those who have to participate in Taraweeh prayers.

He also disclosed how the majority of the night roadblocks are being used by security operatives to extort money from the citizens and advised the government to lift the curfew.

Ssebagala’s submission compelled Kadaga to summon Rugunda saying the curfew had affected the country’s economy.

Kadaga made the decision to summon Kadaga public, sharing a tweet on her twitter handle. “I have instructed the Prime Minister to come tomorrow and update us on our demand for a review of the curfew policy…,” she tweeted.

Kadaga also summoned the Attorney General to explain the failure by the government to appoint a substantive chairperson of the Uganda Human Rights Commission, the chairperson of the Equal Opportunities Commission and a substantive IGG.
