  • The president also ordered for the release of cars that were impounded on Monday as a result of his order halting the movement of all private vehicles by 10pm.

President Museveni has said the media is part of the essential services that must be allowed to continue working, as the rest of the country is put under lockdown.
Museveni was speaking Tuesday night to the nation to clarify some of the guidelines he issued on Monday in a bid to contain the spread of the highly contagious Coronavirus.
“The media people and journalists are very important to this country. Their movements (work-related) should be allowed but the ministry of works will have to give them stickers for purposes of order and manageability,” Museveni said.
