approved geneva;”>Heavily-armed counter terrorism personnel, special combat units of police and the army and detectives have swamped Namugongo to thwart any possible attacks especially by the Al Shabaab.

Prime Minister Amama Mbabazi, who on Sunday attended the morning mass, urged pilgrims to remain vigilant amidst increased terror threats.

President Museveni arrived at around mid-day for the second mass.

Kampala Metropolitan Police Commander, Andrew Felix Kaweesi told Chimpreports at Namugongo today that hundreds of uniformed and plain-clothed security personnel have been deployed ahead of the Uganda Martyrs’ day celebrations on June 3.

Kaweesi says “despite the fact that police were yesterday given new uniforms, it does not guarantee security because the terror attacks have increased day and night.”

He warned those harbouring criminal thoughts to stay away from Namugongo or face arrest.

Kawempe District Police Commander, Siraje Bakaleke, who is the head of operations at Namugongo, revealed that from the time police took control of surrounding areas, there have been minimal crime cases and on the same note asked pilgrims to maintain order when they arrive.

Bakaleke said Police have heavily deployed along Kireka, Kiira, Sonde, Bulindo and Kiwatule to bolster security.

Kaweesi also warned the pilgrims to avoid carrying heavy luggage to the prayer area before urging parents to keep kids away.
