    NO FIREWORKS TO WELCOME NEW YEAR- POLICE
    Those intending to display fireworks to usher in the New Year, 2022, should consider another form of celebration.
    This comes after the Police warned that due to the threat of terrorism and the spread of Omicron, no fireworks should be displayed.
    A letter by Edward Ochom, the Police’s Director of Operations, said they had received various requests to display fireworks but unfortunately no such event would take place.
    “This serves to inform you that despite the tradition of having fireworks, due to COVID-19 guidelines, restrictions, and directives in of the present infections on the Omicron variant and the threat of terrorism, there will be no fireworks display,” Ochom said.
    “We regret the inconvenience and deprivation the revelers may have to bear and thank you for the great cooperation we have had regarding the matter,” Ochom added.
    This is the second year without the display of fireworks to welcome the new year in Uganda.
