Wedding ceremonies and concerts have been canceled because of the Covid-19 prevention.
Due to the increase in the number of Covid-19 new cases, many Rwandans started wondering what the new preventive measures will be and they even think that they can be very strict. Some of them are even thinking that they may end up in lockdown for the second time.
Even though some people were thinking that way, the cabinet meeting chaired by the president of the Republic of Rwanda, H.E Paul Kagame, held on this Monday, the 14th December 2020, which came up with different resolutions, whereas all movements are prohibited from 9PM to 4AM, weddings and parties are canceled, as well as the decrease of a number of people’s seats in the buses.
This cabinet meeting decided that wedding ceremonies and parties of all kinds are prohibited, and the meetings or conferences should not exceed 30% of the venue capacity and the participants must take the covid-19 test.
The cabinet concluded that passengers should not exceed 50 % of the capacity of the buses.
As mentioned in the announcement released by the prime minister’s office, the movements are prohibited between 9PM and 4AM from the 15th to the 21th December. From the 22nd December to the 4th January 2021 the movements will be prohibited from 8PM to 4AM.
As for Musanze District, the resolutions were different, the movements are prohibited between 7PM and 4AM, and the church assemblies should not exceed 30% of the normal attendance.
