Tororo Woman Member of Parliament Hon. Sarah Opendi wants Alcohol sales and consumption limited to 8 hours a day, from 5 pm to 1 am.
The Member of Parliament is expected to seek leave of Parliament to introduce the Alcohol Control Bill 2022.
Alcohol is one of the most commonly used substances globally and contributes to roughly 5.3% of deaths and 5.1% of the global disease burden.
The sale or consumption of alcohol before 5 pm or after 1 am would become criminal in Uganda, and violators would face a Shs2m fine or a one-year jail term
