Kampala | Deputy Police PRO Nabakka Claire says Uganda enjoyed a peaceful week due to heightened security at border points. 

However, incidents of organised crime like robberies, murders, and burglaries, remain a concern, she adds.

“As we conclude the month of November, ushering in the new month of December we anticipate festivities, parties, religious celebrations, Christmas and the New Year. These events pull crowds.

“However, we have put strategic plans in place to secure these events amidst threats of violent attacks.

The Deputy PRO says the Police applaud the UPDF for the ongoing successful operations in the DRC where two of the suspects in the killing of the students at Lhubiriha High School, Mpondwe and the attacks on the tourists in Queen Elizabeth National Park were put out of action inside the DRC.

“The public is urged to report any suspicious persons, activities, or unattended items, especially while travelling.

“Let’s practise a collective responsibility for safety by remaining vigilant and reporting any concerns to the nearest Police Station.”

The month of December is expected to see a surge in crime rates, including cases of road crashes across the country.
