Police have this morning arrested several city traders including former Makerere University Researcher Dr Stella Nyanzi, as they attempted to address a news conference protesting against the closure of city arcades in the COVID-19 induced lockdown.

The group led by the Godfrey Katongole, the chairman of the Kampala City Arcaders Association had started addressing journalists when a joint force of the police and LDU rounded them up.

They have also threatened to stage a demonstration on Tuesday next week if the government does not respond to their plea for reopening of arcades.

Dr Nyanzi who also claims to own businesses in the arcades and the other arrested traders have been taken to the Central Police Station.
