Prayer gatherings are only allowed in places of worship that were permitted to resume services and observing the health guidelines against Coronavirus.
Police and local leaders found the group at about 1pm, congregating in the cave located in Gakokobe Village, Bwerankori Cell in Kigarama Sector.
Worshippers belong to the Pentecostal Church; and had come from Gahanga, Kigarama, Runda, Gisozi and Nyamirambo sectors.
RNP spokesperson, CP John Bosco Kabera said the worshippers were arrested due to the information provided by concerned local residents.
"It has been so much explained that gatherings for religious services are prohibited. Some of these worshippers have been caught in related violations before and educated on the directives, but inappropriate behaviors seem to be continued. We remind that such behaviours will not be tolerated," CP Kabera warned.
He told them that holding such gatherings exposes them to the risk of catching and spreading the virus, more than that worshipping under the caves especially in this rainy season can deprive them of lives.
"Players must be conducted in places of worship that were allowed to resume and worshippers must strictly adhere to directives so as to prevent catching Covid-19, spreading it."
The RNP Spokesperson equally thanked members of the public, who facilitate the enforcement of directives through information sharing on those flouting the Covid-19 prevention directives.
The violators arrested were taken to IPRC Stadium where they were educated on health measures, and fined by administrative authorities.
