Uganda’s President, Yoweri Museveni banned the wearing of hoddies while driving vehicles or riding bicycles/motorcycles. This move comes shortly after the representative for Arua Municipality, Mr Ibrahim Abiriga was murdered alongside his brother Saidi Butele, who also doubled as his bodyguard.

While addressing the mourners at Lukudu in Arua District, the head of state issued a strong warning to those who use hooded jackets to hide their faces and commit crimes.

“The people who killed Abiriga were using a simple technique of putting on a jacket with a hood. Why do you allow these people with hoods to move around? We are going to ban the covering of your head when you’re driving or riding on a bike,” he said.

At Abiriga's burial on Monday 11th June, Museveni promised to pursue the assailants.

“Now people are worried, sad and angry. Me, I’m sad, angry but I’m confident we’re going to defeat these people. They’re going to see what NRM means in war. All those who have been sending threatening messages on social media are going to see,” he said.

All cyclists in Uganda will now have to get new helmets with reflective numbers at the back as part of efforts by Museveni’s government to tame increasing insecurity.
