Police told to enforce Tobbaco Control Act
Tobacco is linked to most of the cancers and Non-Communicable diseases and kills nearly 13,500 people in Uganda and over 600,000 non-smokers exposed to second hand smoke globally.
Andrew Kwizera from Campaign for Tobacco free kids says Tobacco is the only product that kills half its consumers and is the only legal product that kills non-users.
Kwizera was speaking during a training for policemen from the Narcotics desks of different police stations like Kira, Jinja Road, Mukono and the Central Police Station.
Kwizera says as a result the Uganda Police should enforce the Tobacco Control Act 2015 as the next step in the Tobacco Free Ugandacampaign.
