Covid-19 pandemic in the region.

concert held at Speke Resort Munyonyo, was picked by Katwe Police together with the venue
manager Ivan Dungu and events manager Prim Kasana.
His arrest follows a public outcry by Ugandan entertainers who castigated the Police for
allowing international artistes to hold concerts while the local ones are denied.

could be related to doing a negligent act that could lead to the spread of a pandemic.
