Uganda: Upcountry Transport Fares Rise As Travellers Increase

Following a surge in Covid-19 cases in the country, President Museveni on Sunday directed that inter-district movement be closed for 42 days in an attempt to stem the spread of the pandemic.

The announcement saw hundreds of people rushing to various public transport terminals in a bid to travel to various destinations before June 11 when the ban takes effect.

This mad dash for public transport has, however, resulted in many transport operators hiking prices, especially for those leaving Kampala.
