Kagadi resident district commissioner (RDC) Lilian Ruteraho has ordered police to immediately close Devine guesthouse for allegedly hosting an illegal birthday party that attracted more than 250 people.
The suspects were arrested on Saturday at 11 pm while attending a birthday party organized by Joachim Ategeka in contravention of Covid-19 guidelines.
The suspects were later whisked to Kagadi central police station where they are being detained on charges of negligent act that is likely to spread an infectious disease.
But police wants to release them with caution because they are too many to be safely kept in the cells. The managers of the guesthouse have since fled to an unknown destination.
