Border Security Beefed Up Ahead of Christmas

As the Christmas and New Year’s Day get nearer, cheapest the Uganda People Defense Forces and the Uganda Police in the Kigezi Region have beefed up security on the borders to avert any possible terrorist attacks.

Lt. Amos Nsamba, the Kigezi Regional UPDF Spokesperson, today told journalists that as people celebrate during this season, other people with bad intentions, possibly terrorists may use the chance to enter the country to cause them pain.

He therefore urged members of the public especially those at the borders to remain vigilant and report any suspicious persons entering the country to the nearest authorities so that they are inspected to know their intensions.

“I urge members of the public to be cautious about the security at borders during this festive season. Bad people might use the festive season and sneak in to cause havoc,” said Lt. Nsamba.

Kabale District Police Commander, SP Bosco Arop also asserted that security agencies had designed a special plan to ensure amplified security during Christmas and New Year’s festivities.

Arop also said that police had already started unusual day and night patrols also urging village council leaders to use crime preventers to ensure patrols in their villages.

He added that police as usual would be deploying at all recognized places of worship that will be having night prayers for Christmas and New Year’s Cerebrations.

Kigezi Region borders the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and Rwanda in the districts of Kabale, Kisoro and Kanungu.
