troche geneva; color: #222222;”>To achieve this, malady all public places like entertainment centres, bars and supermarkets without security checking gadgets, will be closed without any further warning.

David Mwebaze, the Regional Community Liaison officer Kampala Metropolitan North, says police have continuously advised proprietors of several hangouts to improve security to no avail.

“We will not only close such places but also arrest all petrol station managers who allow vehicles to park at their stations despite of the earlier warnings.”

James Kazaarwa, the DISO for Wakiso district, advised all residents to set up recognised security committees so that they may work with police in providing security in their zones.

During a sensitisation meeting, the DPC Wakiso, ASP Norah Mpawulo, warned all LC.1 Chairpersons in the district against selling land to more than one person.

Relatedly, the O.C Nansana Kirumira Muhammad, called upon whoever has got any information leading to the arrest of any criminal to immediately report to the nearby police station to help curb the high crime rate.

“This is part of the community policing which was earlier on launched by the IGP and it has greatly worked for us in eliminating crime from Nansana and the neighbouring areas.”

Kirumira added that they are going to continue sensitizing all residents about crime basing on their occupations and places of residence.
