These include prices of public means of transport which the president put under lockdown.

The President said that all public means of transportation from one district to another were banned effective Thursday June 10th 2021 for 42 days.

Mr Museveni said he had given these four days to transport people especially students to and from their places of work, residence, schooling to their homes.

After June 10th no public vehicle will will be allowed to move from one district to another.

Following this announcement, public means of transport have hiked prices to a percentage of 15-20% on to the prices that have been in place.
