Following the return of drink – driving operations by Uganda Police, bar owners in Kampala have expressed their fear of losing business since people will no longer drown themselves in booze.
“I cannot make my sales target if the police are threatening to arrest my drunken customers,” said one of the popular bar managers in town.
Kampala Metropolitan Police Commander Andrew Felix Kaweesi looks at the operation in a different perspective.
“The operations will be resuming in order to reduce accidents in the coming festive season.
We can’t continue losing lives. So we are resuming the operations to arrest and fine drunk-drivers from today”
