WAKISO – Police in Nalumunye have arrested two suspects identified as Peter and Ismail Lugemwa who were behind vandalization of wire mashes on Entebbe Express Highway.
The two who were found in possession of about 50kgs of chain link are being detained at Nalumunye Police Station.
Police say there will be increased vigilance along the Express Highway, urging the public to inform them on any mischief along the high way.
Entebbe Express Highway that connects Kampala to Entebbe International Airport was constructed at a cost of $476 million.
The government promised to electrify the fence of the newly constructed route to stop vandalism of road furniture. No action has been taken in fulfilling this promise.
“Electrifying the fence will help to minimize the burden of maintaining vandalized road furniture. Cameras, when installed, will ease monitoring of activities along the Express Highway.
Others are the ministry of Local Government, Ministry of Lands Housing and Urban Development, Office of the Prime Minister, Civil Society organizations and the private sector. This multi-sectoral and integrated approach will ensure the sustainability of the project results by aligning its activities to national and district priorities that promote local stakeholder participation and ownership.
