The Somalia-based Al Shabaab elements claimed responsibility for the Westgate carnage in which scores were killed and hundreds injured. Property worth billions of Ushs was destroyed in the terrorist bombings.

The reports of the terrorists using the porous Ugandan border to attack Kenya first appeared in the Kenyan media.

Such stories raise fresh queries about Uganda’s ability to control the movements of terrorists in the country.

A few weeks ago, Internal Affairs Minister, Gen Aronda Nyakairima ordered all officials in the immigration department to undertake specialized courses on counter terrorism and intelligence gathering.

Nabakooba said Police have “been working together with the Kenyan Security agencies to see that we defeat the terrorists; we are doing this by sharing intelligence information regularly and expertise in terrorism related field.”
