The government has withdrawn a condition that passengers must prove that they are fully vaccinated before using public transport.
The cancellation of the directive comes barely a week after it was announced by President Yoweri Museveni, as a condition for reopening the economy and allowing public service vehicles to load their full capacity.
Passengers were required to carry vaccination cards, a measure which, however, has been found to be difficult to enforce, according to Works and Transport Minister Gen Edward Katumba Wamala.
He says that many public transporters could not differentiate between genuine and fake cards, yet some already vaccinated travellers never received their cards from the Ministry of Health.
Gen Katumba Wamala has now revised the directive with only the drivers required to be vaccinated.
