As the joint task teams continue to safeguard pilgrims at Namugongo for today’s Martyrs Day celebrations, we are also registering more people arriving at the Anglican and Catholic shrines.
However, some of these are wrong elements. We have so far registered four cases of theft of phones, one of stealing from a motor vehicle and one of indecent assault at Anglican Shrine.
Meanwhile, at the Catholic shrine, we have registered 36 cases (35 thefts and one of issuing counterfeit currency).
We have arrested 34 suspects and they are detained at Kira Division Police Station.
We thank the pilgrims for following the security guidelines and being peaceful.
We want to assure the members of the public that we will continue to safeguard them as they celebrate Martyrs Day.
