Commissioner of Police Brigadier General Sitiveni Qiliho wishes to commend those who have been listening and adhering to the advisories and we hope that the weekend will not see a spike in the number of arrests of curfew breach as people move around with the intentions of gathering for social purposes.

“Plan your movement well, and if you’re not home by 10pm, stay where you are until the curfew is lifted at 5am,” he said.
