$10 Fine for not Wearing Mask Properly

The authorities in Rwanda’s capital, Kigali, have announced that people will be fined $10 (about Uganda shillings 37,000) for not wearing face masks in public or not wearing them properly.

The same fine will also be imposed for violating the 2m (6ft) social distancing rule in public, or ignoring the night-time curfew.

Rwanda was the first country in sub-Saharan Africa to impose a total lockdown after confirming its first cases.

Some people who violated restrictions were taken to stadiums or school buildings where they were forced to sit all night or day.
