The Police spokesman Emilian Kayima confirmed that the designated areas and roads including Parliamentary Avenue, Said Barre Road, King George II Road, Kimathi Avenue and Sir Apollo Kagwa Road will be used by a local film production company as they shoot the movie.

According to Kayima, traffic officers at various junctions will be guiding road users about the alternative routes.

“The general public is therefore informed that there is no cause for alarm and these activities are taking place to facilitate the film production,” said Kayima.

The director for Communication and Public Affairs at Parliament, Chris Obore refuted reports that Parliamentary activities have been suspended for three days to create room for the shooting of the movie

“Isaiah 60 productions, a local film production company based in Kampala requested and has been granted permission to shoot a film within precincts of parliament over the weekend. In addition,  the law makers are on recess and Parliament staff are  off duty," Obore said.

The Government Chief Whip and also Kiboga woman MP Ruth Nankabirwa said: “Parliament being a public place has been used by many people including those exhibiting health, business and schools issues. There is no problem with Natasha if she requested the management to use the  area for shooting her movie, besides it is a weekend when we don’t have business.”
