President Yoweri Museveni while addressing the nation on Sunday condemned the brutal killing of Ugandans including former Police Commander Kirumira and vowed to track the killers.
The president said the criminals are still using gaps such as the absence of CCTV cameras and failure to electronically register Boda Boda riders.
“The Police Force is working hard to fill the gaps. They have started installing the cameras and other measures are being put in place,” he said adding that, “the electronic identification of boda-bodas would have helped to identify these people quickly.
He also revealed that the national security met on Sunday morning to devise means of ending the killings.
“On the urban criminals, the subcommittee of security began meeting at 10:00hrs under my chairmanship and we are to stop these pigs by not just relying on the old police methods. Pending the installing of cameras etc everywhere, we are going to re-activate the Luweero methods to deal with these cowardly pigs. Wait for my announcement this afternoon,” he said.
