“It was decided to impose a curfew in the areas of Bosa, Kennedy and Ciudad Bolivar,” Duque wrote on his Twitter.
Como resultado de PMU que lideramos en @PoliciaColombia con Alcalde @EnriquePenalosa, se ha decidido decretar toque de queda en las localidades de Bosa, Kennedy y Ciudad Bolívar. Buscamos preservar el orden y seguridad en estas zonas, con presencia de policía y ejército nacional.- Iván Duque (@IvanDuque) November 22, 2019
The President noted that the decision was made following a meeting with a police representative and the mayor of the capital, Enrique Penyalosa.
“We strive to maintain order and security,” he added.
On September 22, the Colombian leader called for an “end to the rule” of Venezuelan leader Nicolas Maduro. At the same time, Duke compared Maduro with the former head of Yugoslavia and the first president of Serbia Slobodan Milosevic.
