LIST: 127 arcades allowed to reopen

The Ministry of Kampala Capital City And Metropolitan Affairs on 7th August updated the public on the guidelines and status of opening work spaces as guided by the President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni in his address after the 42-day lockdown.

The Ministry and KCCA started implementing instructions for workspaces such as Kikuubo and other arcades that are known for congestion and overcrowding which could create possibilities for the continuous spread of Covid- 19.

The Public Health team at KCCA together with Internal Security, Military Police, Uganda Police Force and Ministry of Trade, Industry & Cooperatives assigned an inspection team to assess suitability and compliance of the arcades based on a checklist that ensured adherence to Covid-19 SOPs.

Arcade owners, their leaders and trader association leaders were all involved in drafting of the said checklist which was used to recommend opening, provisionally fail or fail reopening of arcades.

The critical measures that the inspection teams used and are continuing to use to make determinations of whether arcades and malls should be opened or not are the include;

1. 50% capacity in the arcades.

2. No vendors or hawkers allowed on City streets in the CBD.

3. All passageways be cleared of illegal structures.

4. No shop extensions were allowed.

5. Access would only be allowed with mask, temperature measurement and sanitization

6. Presence of compliance officers

7. CCTV camera surveillance

8. Isolation rooms in place.

9. Adequate sanitary facilities (one toilet per 20 shops)

10. A register of all tenants in the arcade to facilitate government knowledge of populations in the said workspaces and extent of government intervention if any is required.

On Wednesday 11th August 2021, a total of two hundred and forty-seven (247) arcades had been inspected and only 127 were recommended for opening while 120 were not recommended for re-opening.

The enforcement team will continue to ensure that all streets are free of vendors and encourage those trading in irregular spaces to move into the markets and out bounds of the city.

Government through KCCA has greatly improved infrastructure like roads, street lighting and drainage in the suburbs attracting developments that are quickly and competitively providing workspaces.

On Monday, 16th August 2021, the inspection teams shall head out to Makindye Division and thereafter, Lubaga, Kawempe and Nakawa to undertake the same task to ascertain compliance of arcades and other workspaces.

Vaccination will continue under KCCA and the Metropolitan at designated points that have been extensively published and the public is encouraging all eligible, as per the Ministry of Health Guidance, to get vaccinated.

The Minister continues to remind the public that compliance as a city shall determine whether the economy fully reopens successfully or we face a third wave. He further urged Ugandans to uphold the SOPs communicated by the Ministry of Health and abide by the government set curfew hours.
