Darius Nandinda, the Kabale Resident District Commissioner said they will have to confine these people to study their health

Ivan Mulumba, one of the travellers said the directive to lock them up for 14 days was unfair since they did not have enough money to sustain themselves for this long.
Steven Niwagaba another traveller noted that his family will suffer since he was rushing to sort out a few issues at home.
