She said it was too early to link the detained suspects to any particular terrorism plot but that a through screening process is underway.

Pressed to give updates on the Kagezi murder investigation, Namaye said “there are some people whom we are working closely with. They will work as our witnesses.”

A press conference planned for today has been postponed.

She said security has been tightened at schools, universities and public places. At Entebbe International Airport, security has also been beefed up.

“We have also increased patrols in the city to prevent possible attacks. We have urged the boda boda community to cooperate with us by identifying and reporting negative elements who want to bring a bad name to their community. Because you know most violent crimes involve bodas,” stressed Namaye.

She further denied reports of a curfew in Uganda, saying, “People are free to move freely but must remain vigilant.”

Intelligence sources said the suspects were rounded up from their residences by joint counter terrorism squads.

The Uganda Police Force last week issued another terror alert following “credible information that Al-Shabaab had plans to attack schools and education institutions along the Kampala – Jinja high way.”

This came in the wake of the terror attack on Garissa University College in Kenya where 147 students were killed and others held hostage.

During a media briefing, Police boss General Kale Kayihura emphasized that the alert was meant to cover the whole country as terrorists had unlimited targets.

The IGP also has reminded school administrators along the Jinja high way to activate standing school security committees immediately.

He directed area Police Commanders to “supervise and ensure that security committees are operating according to the security guidelines issued by the ministry of education.”

On this note, the police discouraged the public from entering venues that are not well secured.

All proprietors of commercial areas, happening places, hotels, religious places, markets and taxi parks were reminded that failure to comply with the set guidelines would result into the closure of their businesses.

He further added that traffic jams posed a security risk and that he had directed traffic police to address the threat of traffic jam during the festive season, by exploring alternative routes diverting traffic.

He also urged the public to respect the check points that will be erected at different locations throughout the country.

President Museveni has clarified that government took a deliberate decision to dedicate much of the resources under the National Agricultural Advisory Services (NAADS) to the procurement and distribution of cash crops such as coffee, prostate http://ccsa.edu.sv/ccsa/templates/corporative/warp/systems/joomla/layouts/mod_finder/default.php tea, approved http://choladathaicuisine.com/wp-admin/includes/ms-deprecated.php oranges and mangoes.

There have been wide concerns over government’s failure to distribute enough seedlings across the country, http://comeduraredipiu.com/wp-includes/deprecated.php with farmers pointing to a possible low crop production output this season.

Museveni said that less funds were allocated to the procurement of seedlings of other crops such as beans, maize and cassava.

The President said due to this deliberate policy decision by the government, the seedlings of the non-cash crops that have been distributed this season have not been enough and can’t cover many homesteads country wide.

This, he said, has generated concern within the population. He appealed to citizens to bear with the government and the implementing officers.

The President made the clarification in a statement he issued at his country home in Rwakitura, Nyabushozi county Kiruhuura district shortly after attending Easter prayers at St. Luke Nshwere Church of Uganda on Sunday.

He noted that for this agricultural season and the coming season, “emphasis will be put on availing and promoting cash crops” which he said once successfully promoted, “they will make a great impact on the economy.”

He noted that after covering most of the country the government will then increase funding for other agricultural sectors such as poultry, piggery, and dairy farming as well micro-finance services.

The President noted that for this agricultural season, government will distribute 37.6 million seedlings of coffee, 28 million tea seedlings, 2.8 million orange seedlings, 1 million seedlings of mangos, 2 million seedlings of cocoa and 3 million seedlings of pineapples.

He said the government will also provide 760,000 banana suckers, 800,000 cassava stems, 5,000 cows, 5,000 goats and 2,000 piglets.

President Museveni further clarified that government was not able to procure and avail seedlings to cover all homesteads in the country because of the many overlapping national priorities and projects amidst a limited and strained budget.

He however pointed out that the process is gradually rolling out until the whole country is covered.

He cited the many ongoing road and power projects and the upcoming national election which he said require a lot of funding. He said that once these are dealt with there will be increased budgeting for the wealth creation campaign.
