A Ugandan police chief, who attended a house party during the country’s coronavirus lockdown, has been arrested and charged with disobedience of lawful orders, reports the Daily Monitor newspaper. 

Samson Lubega, a police commander in Agago, northern Uganda, was detained on Sunday evening after he allegedly attended a house party organized by a businessman who returned from the UK through Dubai last month.

It’s alleged that Mr Francis Onek, a businessman in Patongo town council,  organised a get-together of 30 people with the police chief as one of the guests in attendance.

Ugandan Police spokesman Jimmy Patrick Okema said the police chief will be transferred to police headquarters in Kampala for further interrogation and those who attended the party will be screened and quarantined.
