Last week, Museveni had allowed sports activities to go on behind closed doors (with no fans allowed) but on Friday, this has been also scrapped.

It should be noted that sports activities were all put to a halt in March 2020 when the first lockdown was announced.

Whereas there has been gradual return to action since then, allowing of fans into sports arenas has been restricted with a maximum of 200 people allowed at a given event.
