President Yoweri Museveni of Uganda has suspended all means of public transport for the next two weeks.
The move by the President is set to curb the spread of coronavirus in the country which currently stands at 14.
Public transport services affected by the new directives include boda boda, buses and passenger trains.
Private vehicles have been allowed to move around but limit the number of occupants to three only.
On Wednesday, President Museveni warned traders against rising prices of commodities saying the goods the country had yesterday are the same today.
“Nothing has caused prices of foodstuffs to be hiked. The bananas we had yesterday are the same today, the maize is the same.
So the crooks who are taking advantage of coronavirus to hike prices of foodstuffs anywhere in this country will be arrested and their licenses revoked. ”
