Terror Alert: Security Not Tightened Despite UK Warning To Uganda

The United Kingdom in a travel advisory warned that terrorists are very likely to carry out attacks in Uganda. In an updated terror alert, the UK predicted that the attacks could be indiscriminate or against foreign nationals or places frequented by them.

“You should be vigilant at all times, especially in crowded areas and public places like hotels, transport hubs, restaurants and bars, and during major gatherings like sporting or religious events,” a July 2 advisory reads in part.

The advisory also advised to be vigilant while in proximity to government buildings or security installations such as police stations.

However, though, security by last evening has not been upgraded in crowd-pulling areas despite the terror alert. Many public places have not intensified their surveillance or upgraded their checkpoints.

Regardless of that, however, security agencies have responded to the terror alert saying that Uganda is currently safe.

Brig Felix Kulayigye, the Uganda People’s Defence Force (UPDF) and Defence spokesperson says terror threats to Uganda are like those to other countries. He said they have ably defended the country in the past.

Police spokesperson Fred Enanga also echoed the police chief’s earlier message. He urged the general public to remain calm, but keep a sharp eye out.
