Kampala: Last week, the UK and the French Embassy, respectively issued travel advisories and terror alerts to their citizens intending to travel to Uganda and those in Uganda. They further called upon them to be extra alert and vigilant as they go about their daily activities.
Now, Uganda Police via its Spokesperson Fred Enanga has responded to the alerts assuring Ugandans that Joint Counter Terror teams have subjected the respective alerts to a process of validation for specifics, to help determine whether these threats are imminent or not.
According to Enanga, the public should rest assured that threat levels and counter-terror responses are constantly under review. ‘’They should, therefore, remain calm but vigilant. We wish to add that, in case they come across any suspicious behaviour or anything of public concern, they should alert the nearest security agency,’’ says Enanga.
Meanwhile, Enanga adds that if Police feels it is necessary to heighten its threat level, during this period, they shall definitely do so.
‘’Our task teams do take the security and safety of all Ugandans and visitors in the country, as a top priority. We have previously thwarted several plots, both foreign and domestic, since the double attack of 2010 in Kampala and will continue to jealously guard our country, from all forms of threats,’’ noted Enanga.
