Uganda asks Kenya to pick her two terror suspects
14 April 2015, 15:31
Kampala - Authorities in Uganda have requested Kenya and Democratic republic of Congo to pick their citizens who were arrested last week in Kasese district on suspicion of terror-related activities.
Two Kenyans and one Congolese were arrested while traveling in a car with Kenyan registration numbers. They had entered Uganda through the Malaba border point under suspicious circumstances.
Uganda police spokesman, Fred Enanga said, ''We arrested three suspects; two Kenyans and one Congolese. They had no valid pass to be in Uganda. We have contacted authorities in Kenya and Democratic Republic of Congo to help us repatriate their people.''
He added that they expect response from Kenya and Democratic Republic of Congo soon, noting that delayed response from the two countries will force Uganda to arraign them on charges of illegal entry into the country.
Uganda police and other security organizations in the country have stepped up vigilance following the killing of a senior prosecutor in Kampala by terrorists, and the attack in Kenya's Garissa university.
