A Uganda People’s Defense Forces (UPDF) soldier is nursing injuries he sustained after he was attacked by a gang of youth as he was on duty implementing the presidential directives in Mityana District.

Sgt Paul Kyandiya was attacked at around 9 pm on Tuesday while implementing the curfew announced by President Museveni on Monday evening as one of the measures to prevent further spread of the COVID-19.
The curfew which runs between 7 pm and 6:30 am took effect on Tuesday and is supposed to last a period of two weeks.
It is alleged that the assailants hit the soldier with a blunt metallic object which left him with a fractured arm.

According to the Resident District Commissioner (RDC), Mr Isha Ntumwa, police have managed to arrest two suspects but are still hunting for others.
“Mityana has many criminal gangs; one of them attacked our soldier and hit him while on duty implementing the presidential directives at Busimbi-station Road,” Mr Ntumwa said.

“Our officer kept calm and didn’t harm anybody,” Mr Ntumwa said adding that they are now going to be tougher while implementing the directives.
