President Yoweri Museveni has said nobody will disturb Uganda’s peace.
While presiding over the pass-out ceremony of 443 tank crew graduates at the Karama Armoured Warfare Training School in Kababmba, the President said: “Nobody will disturb the peace of Uganda. Anybody who tries will perish because the army is strong.”
The President said the problem is some confused youth who have been radicalized and some neighboring countries who can’t control their affairs. He did not name the said neighboring countries.
He also cited the poor internal intelligence sector in towns, which he said has lagged behind.
“Internally, we have lagged behind about intelligence in towns to discover who is planning and where it is happening. The terror has shifted from the rural areas to towns where there are bigger populations and many buildings. Security in town is intelligence based.”
We have moved very well so far, he said adding to the investigations on the recent twin bombings in Kampala that: “We have got videos of those who had the bombs because of the cameras. Now we need to do more. Cameras are eyes, I have heard that you can also put noses in the cameras (Install sensors) which can smell the bombs and send an alert.”
The idea that they can be on the street is a good one, the President added before warning: “These terrorists, we shall finish them. They are wasting their time, they will be defeated.”
