Uganda Police has urged Ugandans to be more vigilant during this Easter holiday.
Police deputy spokesperson, Claire Nabakka, warned that the holiday comes with the potential for increased criminality, where opportunists and criminal elements target pedestrians, motorist, homes, passengers, revelers among others, to attack, steal and rob from them.
She said that despite Uganda being free from specific terrorism threats, members of the public should be vigilant.
Nabakka explained that much as police’s levels of vigilance and alertness have been heightened at all major places of worship, entertainment and social events, Ugandans need to remember that safety is everyone’s job and responsibility.
The Deputy Police Spokesperson further, cautioned road users against reckless driving adding that as police, they have put up tough and stringent measures to tackle such undisciplined drivers.
