Ugandans Asked To Stop ‘Strangers’ In Worship Places

Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni has urged Ugandans to be vigilant in the wake of terrorism threats, asking that all visitors be checked before entering places of worship and recreational facilities.

In a televised address to the nation Museveni asked Ugandans not to allow any “strange” people to churches as well as mosques and report them to police.

He said for the hotels and lodges, take particulars of people who come there and make sure they show their identity cards with their pictures

Museveni asked people to be calm amid terrorism threats linked to Allied Democratic Forces militants, saying security forces were hunting for them.

Museveni’s remarks come days after Ugandan police foiled a bomb attack on a church in the capital Kampala and recovered five more explosives a day later.
