Police issues security guidelines ahead of World Cup
By: Melanie Aanyu
The police has issued tight security guidelines to be followed during the forthcoming 2022 World Cup tournament to avoid terror attacks as it was in 2010.
The biggest world football tournament kicks off on Sunday in Qatar and will run for the next one month.
Core to the security guidelines is that venue owners should organise taxis to transport the football lovers to their respective homes if there are late-night matches to watch.
Addressing the media yesterday during the weekly security briefing in Nuguru, Kampala, Mr Fred Enanga, the police spokesperson, appealed to the public, to be vigilant during this one month’s football fete.
In 2010, twin bombings went off in Kampala targeting fans watching the World Cup final between Netherlands and Spain, leaving 76 people dead.
