Kasinga, however said, “Stepping up security does not mean that we have not been working. We have only increased our vigilance and effectiveness so that patients may not have any fear of terror.”

He said all vehicles have to be thoroughly checked before they can be allowed on Hospital premises and thereafter be screened.

“We have set up a screening check point where we select vehicles that are allowed to enter in the inner parking and those that are to park in the outside parking; only staff vehicles, ambulances and vehicles taking or picking patients from the hospital are allowed inside as one of the means to avoid congestion,” noted Kasinga.

He further advised the public to bear with the new security guidelines at Mulago to avoid inconveniences since they have been put in place to protect everyone.

“For security reasons I cannot reveal the actual number of security officers deployed at the hospital but we have got enough officers from all security organizations in the country stationed at various points at the hospital,” added Kasinga.

Police recently announced a massive deployment of security personnel in different parts of the country to beef up security during the World Cup season to avoid the repeat of the 2010 twin terror attacks in Kampala.
