Abstract

Despite Uganda’s lockdown banning private and public transport, freight trucks continue up and down the country’s roads. With truck drivers accounting for a large proportion of positive COVID-19 cases, many citizens are questioning the fairness of government regulations, especially those who rely on movement and trade to survive. Noah Ukumu reports from Pakwach District between 20 April and 17 June 2020.
