Army takes over security management in Kampala

15 December 2014, 16:53 Godfrey Olukya

Kampala - The army on Monday took over management of security in most parts of Uganda's capital Kampala as the ruling party, NRM's delagates conference that is going on at Mandera national stadium in the outskirts of the city.

All major round-abouts in Kampala are being guarded by heavily armed army men.

According to police, security has been beefed up because there are fears that terrorists can easily take advantage of the situation and try to kill members of the ruling party.

There is also fear that disgruntled youths under their organization, Uganda's Poor Youth, can cause mayhem at the conference. They have threatened to demonstrate at the stadium during the conference against the proposal that Museveni should stand alone as the party's presidential candidate.

Four of the youths who were reportedly planning to cause chaos have been arrested by police. One of their colleagues, Godfrey Muyinda said, ''Four of our colleagues were arrested by police last night. We do not know where they are being held.''

But Uganda police spokesman, Fred Enanga said that whoever will try to cause chaos will be arrested and dealt with accordingly.

Enanga said, ''We have deployed adequately so that security is assured. We have deployed many uniformed and plain clothed security officers to maintain order and peace as the conference takes place.''

Over 10 000 delegates from Uganda and abroad are attending the conference in which they are expected to change some of the party's constitution articles.
