Kampala: Uganda Police Force has issued guidelines ahead of Uganda Martyrs Day Celebrations that will be held on 03/06/2021.
According to Police, due to the deadly second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic, the celebrations will be conducted in a scientific manner with only 200 invitees respectively.
“We would like to remind the thousands of pilgrims and other faith based tourists from upcountry, as well as from the immediate neighbouring countries of the DRC, Kenya, Rwanda, Tanzania, South Sudan and Burundi, not to trek the long distance, but to instead follow the religious celebrations on TV, Radio and other digital platforms,” says Police.
Police further requests invited guests to cooperate with security teams in and around the venues, especially when getting through the check and search points.
Police Spokesperson, CP Fred Enanga says even if the celebrations are low key, and with no specific threats directed towards the scientific religious festivity, the Joint Security Teams have secured the event with a mix of overt, covert and surveillance teams, deployed in and around the venue.
