The Joint Security Team has resolved to aggressively conduct an operation of impounding all vehicles and boda bodas as well as arresting drivers, riders, passengers and occupants who will be found on the roads beyond restricted curfew timings ahead of President Yoweri Museveni’s swearing-in tomorrow.
This has been agreed upon in a special security meeting held this afternoon in Kampala.
The Police Spokesperson Fred Enanga says that this is intended to ensure that the observance of 6pm and 9pm curfew time for bodabodas and motor vehicles is complied.
Enanga further warns all proprietors of fuel stations against allowing parking for bodabodas and other private motorcycles that they are to be subjected to statement recording of whether they have parking licenses.
Ugandan police and military on Monday have stepped up security in and around the capital Kampala ahead of the swearing-in ceremony of President Yoweri Museveni slated for this Wednesday.
At least 4,000 guests, including heads of state, world leaders and former presidential candidates, have been invited to attend the function to be held after Museveni won the January 14 presidential elections.
