In Kenya, the curfew starts at 10PM and ends at 4AM and during these hours, the sale of alcohol is prohibited across the country but people have always found a way to go against this directive.

In Uganda, for example, the Police Spokesperson has come out to reveal how private Hospital ambulances are being used to ferry people from bars at night.

The people who are out to contravene the laws laid in place to ensure that the spread of Covid is mitigated use these ambulances to escape the long arm of the law.

The police spokesperson also indicated how the ambulances are being used to ferry contraband goods from the border of Kenya and Uganda at Busia all the way to Uganda's capital.

“The ambulances, especially the private ones are being used to ferry passengers. You find an ambulance moving at night and thinking it is carrying a patient yet it is transporting revelers from bars during curfew time,” Police Spokesperson, Enanga said.

“The owners of the ambulances, especially the private ones should find ways of monitoring their activities. They can install CCTV cameras to monitor what is going. However, we are soon intercepting them.".

In April 2020, police at Wandegeya intercepted two ambulances ferrying passengers to Kanungu. The two ambulances were belonging to registration numbers UAB 355Z and UAH 832W belonging to Revival Fire Ministries.
