Uganda’s President Yoweri Museveni has banned the use of private vehicle as the country tries to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
Museveni announced the ban on Monday evening while unveiling new measures to contain the spread of coronavirus.
Museveni also ordered the closure of all shops selling non essential products.
The ban goes for two weeks.
Explaining the decision to ban private transportation, Museveni said some people had turned it into public transport which he outlawed last week.
Only shops selling food have been allowed to open.
He has since encouraged the use of deliveries.
Uganda has 33 cases of the dreaded COVID-19 that is wrecking havoc across the world.
Salons, lodges have also been banned.
