I should remind you that terrorists succeed by springing surprises, they hit where and when they are least expected. Let us be on our guard all the time,” explained the Internal Affairs ministry Permanent Secretary.


Kagoda further asked the ministries to intensify security checks on all their facilities and other institutions under their dockets such as schools, hospitals, hotels, markets transport facilities and carry out frequent inspections to ensure that security is maintained at all times.

“The terrorists need to be lucky only once, we have to be lucky all the time. Please understand and explain to others that what security agents are trying to do is for their own good. The bad guys carry no visible marks; they are just like you and me, and this is how they are able to get their targets,” advised Kagoda.

This comes a few days after the army warned of suspected terror attacks to the country by Al Shabaab insurgents after the attack on Westgate Mall in Kenya which claimed many lives.

“Security awareness is what is imperative today, and this shouldn’t stop at the center. Other urban areas outside Kampala are equally vulnerable to these attacks. We don’t want to take any more chances,” warned the Chief of Defence Forces Gen .Edward Katumba Wamala.
