Police have started sensitization campaigns against terror attacks in taxi and bus parks in Kampala as threats mount.  

The campaigns follow the two bombing attacks in Komamboga in Kawempe division where one person died with several others injured on Saturday night and another explosion that occurred on a bus belonging to Swift Safaris Bus Company at Lungala, on the Kampala-Masaka highway. 

A team of police officers led by David Muhooza the Community Liaison Officer Central police station-CPS today went to new taxi Park, Namayiba bus park and Kisenyi bus terminal requesting passengers to be vigilant and sensitized bus operators on security measures they have to put in place.   

   

“We want you people to understand that security starts with you, start checking all passengers and luggage before allowing them into buses, reporting any abandoned items or objects or suspicious person around you and calling police or local leaders once you  see something unusual," Said Muhooza

Cue out “ nga ayina ”//           

Luke Owoyesigyire Kampala Metropolitan Deputy Police Spokesperson told Journalists in Kisenyi Bus Park that the sensitization campaigns are continuing in places of travel to increase people’s vigilance about the scares within the country.

//Cue in “to sensitize the....

Cue out “to see that”// 

   

Lambert Kayilize Manager Link-bus Limited explained that they have asked the security company  guarding the park to double numbers of personnel  at the entrances and exits since a lot of security measures including checkups, recording passenger details are paramount.

Cue out “netuyisa ebiragiro ”// 

   

Some of the passengers who were found traveling said there is a lot of worry amongst them following yesterday’s incident. Michael Mugisha who was traveling to Bundibunjo wonders why there is always insecurity in the country, yet security agencies take a huge chunk of the budget every year.  

//Cue in “government eteeka sente”

Cue out “mpitirivu mu”// 

     

Innocent Jagenda and his colleague Suleiman Dungu who were traveling to Nakasongola from Kasese district called for mass sensitization by police about terror acts to all Ugandans on what to do.  

//Cue in “police should carry”

Cue out “sensitization in place”//

  

Owoyesigyire says the campaigns will continue in all congested places including arcades, Kikubo business center and all places that maybe targeted by attackers to increase people’s vigilance and community policing during this period.
