Police in Uganda’s capital Kampala on Wednesday, July 15 arrested 32 people who were found violating Presidential and Ministry of Health guidelines of social distancing and curfew.
According to the Kampala Metropolitan Police Spokesperson, Patrick Onyango, the suspects were arrested while watching the English Premier League game between Arsenal and Liverpool at Katanga in Wandegeya, Kampala.
“They have been charged with disobedience of lawful orders and doing acts likely to spread infectious disease which is coronavirus,” Onyango said in a statement.
The police spokesperson said the 32 suspects are being lawfully held at Wandegeya Police Station in Kampala.
The EPL game ended 2:1 in favour of Arsenal. This was the club’s first victory against Klopp’s side in five years, Sadio Mane put the champions in front as the gunners dominated for the first 30 minutes at the empty Emirates Stadium.
But Van Dijk’s poor pass allowed Arsenal forward Alexandre Lacazette to equalise before Alisson Becker also produced a rare mistake to allow Lacazette to tee up Reiss Nelson for the winner just before half-time. The goal was Nelson’s first premier league goal.
