Police in Uganda are conducting investigations in a surprising case of two suspects who were impounded after word went around that they were issuing out vaccines for the deadly coronavirus.

The two, a man and his daughter, were nabbed on Friday in Mayuge District but were later released on bond as police continue with investigations to establish whether they freely gave out the vaccine or duped people into buying it.

Just like its neighbours, the East African nation is yet to report a single case of virus even as fellow African countries like Egypt (59), Algeria (20), South Africa (7), Senegal (4), Tunisia (2), Cameroon (2), Nigeria (2), Morocco (2) and Togo (1) grapple with the virus.
