In a message issued on Wednesday to all regional, districts and divisional police commanders, Mugyenyi orders the officers to enforce the directive by President Museveni as issued during his address to parliament on 20th June 2018.
The officers have also been ordered to conduct community policing meetings to educate the public over the directive. Banning of hoods was one of the 10-point security plans, the president presented to parliament last month.
The directive followed the murder of Arua Municipality MP, Ibrahim Abiriga and his bodyguard Saidi Butele. They were shot dead by unknown people near Abiriga's home in Kawanda, Wakiso District.
Last week, the president also ordered for the immediate procurement of escort vehicles and the provision of 'sharpshooters' for all members of parliament.
