6 Chinese have been charged to court in Uganda for leaving the quarantined Centre for COVID-19 when it was not up to the 14 days quarantine. They were arrested in Zombo district which leads to DR Congo. The Police Chief Political Commissar, Asan Kasingye tweeted;
“Eight Chinese who had escaped from quarantine have been arrested in Zombo, enroute to DR Congo. They will be charged in our Courts of law.”
And the minister of state for primary health care, Dr. Joyce Moriku Kaducu also tweeted that;
“The 6 Chinese nationals who were arrested in Zombo for excusing themselves from quarantine before 14 days, have been returned to Kampala today. They will be tried tomorrow in Nakawa. This is not a drill. Uganda has taken drastic measures that EVERYONE is expected to follow.
Their passports have been withheld until after the Court ruling. I hope the other people under quarantine can learn from this experience and follow the guidelines given. Please stay safe and stay vigilant.”
