Uganda police have bolstered security in and outside Kampala city after deadly terrorists attacks swept through Tunisia, no rx http://chesapeakebaydiningguide.com/wp-admin/includes/class-bulk-upgrader-skin.php Kuwait and Somalia this week.

Police boss Gen Kala Kayihura said in a statement on Saturday afternoon that “police and sister agencies are increasing visibility and vigilance and while members of the public must not panic, ambulance http://crmsoftwareblog.com/wp-content/plugins/jetpack/3rd-party/woocommerce-services.php you should be more alert to anything or anybody suspicious and quickly report to the nearest police, decease http://corifentreprises.fr/wp-content/plugins/extensive-recent-posts-widget/views/admin.php security or LC official.”

Gen Kayihura pointed out that, “proprietors of vulnerable public places such as malls, hotels as well as other places of entertainment, markets, parks, schools, churches, mosques etc should work closely with security agencies as we activate counter terrorism measures to ensure that the places are safe and secure and we pass through this period of the Holy Month of Ramadhan peacefully.”

Terrorist group, ISIS, has since claimed responsibility for an attack on a Mosque in the largely peaceful Kuwait that killed 27 people.

In Tunisia, gunmen this week attacked a tourist resort beach, killing 38 people.

On Thursday and Friday, Somali militants attacked an AMISOM base, killing several peacekeepers in what is seen as a week of horror.

Gen Kayihura said today that police received information from “credible sources of plans of possible terror attacks on unspecified targets in the country particularly in the city and surrounding areas.”

He said the law enforcement body is “taking this information seriously, and we ask members of the public to do the same.”

Al Shabaab terrorists attacked Uganda in 2010, killing over 79 people.

There have since been threats on Uganda, with security nipping in the bud planned attacks.

Uganda boasts elite anti-terrorism commando units but observers say most social places remain vulnerable due to the laxity of proprietors.
Police boss Gen Kale Kayihura has warned that the law enforcement body will come out strongly to crack down on any individuals or groups that attempt to cause commotion along Entebbe Road on Sunday amid reports that supporters of Amama Mbabazi are mobilising to give the presidential hopeful a heroic welcome from United States.

Mbabazi, find http://dailyniropekkha.com/wp-content/plugins/archives-calendar-widget/arw-install.php who has been holding meetings and giving interviews to the foreign media in Europe and United States, prescription http://danzaebano.com/components/com_k2/templates/generic.php is expected to return this weekend.

Just a few hours after announcing his presidential bid last week, order hundreds of Mbabazi’s supporters stormed the streets to show their support to the former Prime Minister.

Police quickly swung into action, before arresting over 30 supporters of the toppled NRM Secretary General.

“We have received information that some group is mobilising to ferry unsuspecting members of the public on Entebbe-Kampala highway tomorrow, Sunday 28th June 2015 for motives that we are still investigating,” warned Kayihura in a statement to ChimpReports on Saturday.

“The police alert the public that we have not been notified of any such activities and therefore they are unlawful,” he added.

The IGP further stated that, “The police will ensure that traffic flow along the highway is not disrupted and business life both in Entebbe and Kampala goes on normally.”

Mbabazi, who recently triggered president Museveni’s anger by referring to Uganda as a “tired” nation which needs invigoration, said in an interview published this week by UK’s Independent newspaper that, “I could be arrested.”

He added: ““I would not be surprised – but I’ve been engaged in too many struggles against regimes to be fearful.”

President Museveni recently said Mbabazi’s name had appeared in many intelligence reports linking him to the fabrication and circulation of sectarian content on social media.

Mbabazi denied the charge.

On his possible arrest, Mbabazi told the UK newspaper: “If I didn’t fear Idi Amin then, I won’t have fear now.”

Mbabazi, who maintains that, “There is a very strong feeling in the population that it is time to change leadership”, told VoA network on Wednesday that he had discussed the arrest of his supporters with President Museveni.

He said Museveni directed that arrests should cease but that they had continued.

Observers say a showdown between police and Mbabazi supporters is likely to occur along Entebbe road tomorrow.

Kayihura said in a statement that, “We call upon members of the public in Kampala, Entebbe and along the highway to cooperate with police as you always do. It is vigilance that has kept us safe and it is vigilance that will keep us safe.”
