Earlier, Ankunda told Chimpreports that internal and border security remains water-tight and that memories of the 2010 horrific twin bomb attacks in Kampala are still fresh in the mind of the armed forces.

“Our real strength to deter such incidents and defeat these criminals lies in active community policing,” said Kaweesi, adding, “Our personnel shall not be caught flat-footed. We have been prepared for some time and we thank the public for the continued vigilance.”
