Over 20 travelers arrested at Entebbe Airport with fake COVID-19 certificates

ENTEBBE – About 23 intending travelers have been arrested at Entebbe International airport with forged COVID 19 results.

The arrest comes after two weeks the government ordered the reopening of the airport as part of the plan of easing lockdown.

The government put in place the measures including a negative test certificate for incoming passengers, without which they will be barred from entering the country and sent back on the airline that brought them.

Uganda’s Civil Aviation Authority said each airline would only be allowed one flight per day until December, except for flag carrier Uganda Airlines which would be permitted multiple daily flights.

The suspects include 9 women and 14 men and are currently being detained at Aviation police for interrogation.

A source privy to the arrest but preferred anonymity since they are not allowed to speak to press, said the clearing team that was on duty at the time the group was arrested was taken to AVPOL station for questioning.
