Uganda people’s defense forces (UPDF) have taken over the security of Kampala and its neighbouring suburbs a head of the return of the Kyandondo East member of Parliament Hon.Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu aka Bobi wine who has been out of the country for specialized medical care in the USA.
City dwellers will now have to deal with the heavy deployment of UPDF and police in Kampala and surrounding areas to quell the anticipated chaos on Thursday, when Mr Kyagulanyi arrives at the Airport.
At police divisions and strategic junctions in Kampala, there is heavy presence of military and police personnel armed to the teeth.
At Kampala Central Police Station (CPS), there were over four military patrol vehicles whereas soldiers were seen at the Constitutional Square, Busega Junction, Katwe Division Police headquarters and at Kaleerwe-Gayaza Road junction under the command of land forces commander Maj.General Elweru Peter. Elwelu is most remembered in the Kasese operation few yrs ago that scores dead at the Rwenzururu palace and children fatherless.
A senior police officer, who did not want to be named, intimated to TheSpy Uganda reporter that top security officials from the Metropolitan Policing Area commander, Regional and Divisional police commanders, operations commanders from Special Forces Command (SFC) and Military Police on Wednesday arrived at CPS at 10am for a planning meeting.
“The meeting was called to ensure that security forces are on standby such that the chaos is prevented.
By press time all unit commanders of all security agencies had shifted their planning meeting to Entebbe where Bobi wine will be received from.
