In other news, Kadaga has spoken out on the issue of curfew time, pointing her focus on what happened on Tuesday after the lockdown was eased for private car owners.
There were several roadblocks around the country, and arrests made after some motorists were caught up in traffic jams, and failing to beat the curfew time.
Speaker Kadaga has asked that the curfew issue be discussed by relevant authorities.
Kenzo recently requested the government to allow him to fly back to Uganda citing persistent illness, after he was locked out of the country when President Yoweri Museveni ordered a total lockdown of Uganda's borders to both local and international passengers in a bid to curb the spread of COVID-19.
Kenzo, who had traveled to Ivory Coast for a concert reportedly fell sick recently.
