UN Diplomatic Number Plates Stolen from Juba; Uganda on Alert

Authorities are on alert in Uganda following reports that a number of diplomatic vehicle number plates were stolen from the United Nations, seek and could end up in Uganda.

Police deputy spokesperson Polly Namaye revealed today Ugandan police authorities got information that up to 58 United Nations motor vehicle registration number plates for UNMISS were stolen from South Sudan.

The plates are said to have been stolen from the UN base in Juba on 10th July 2016 under unclear circumstances.

This was the time when tension had just broken out in the country’s capital, following a gun fight at the Presidential palace that left hundreds dead and forced thousands to flee the country.

Namaye revealed, “The Police is concerned that these diplomatic number plates may find their way into Uganda to be used for criminal activities due to the increasing number of refugees and Ugandan nationals returning from South Sudan.”
