Kampala, Uganda | THE BLACK EXAMINER | On Wednesday, Deputy Inspector General of Police Geoffrey Katsigazi Tumusiime visited Jinja to conduct a reconnaissance mission at the Nyege Nyege and Kyabazinga Royal Wedding venues.

Katsigazi reassured the country that despite foreign terror alerts, security agencies are fully prepared to protect attendees at both events.

In response to terror alerts issued by the United States of America and United Kingdom governments warning of a potential terror attack in Uganda, the Deputy Inspector General of Police rushed to Jinja to assess the security situation for the upcoming Nyege Nyege and Kyabazinga Royal Wedding festivities.

Accompanied by various security chiefs from the UPDF and Police, the team conducted a reconnaissance at the Source of the Nile and the Agricultural Show Ground, where Nyege Nyege is held. They also visited Kyabazinga Stadium in Bugembe, where the Royal Wedding Pre-Party will take place this Saturday.

Katsigazi confirmed that security has been significantly enhanced, with both venues now secure. He stated, “We have deployed both covert and overt security, so I can assure all those preparing to attend both events that security has been reinforced.”

Katsigazi emphasized that there is no need for alarm due to the terror threats, as such alerts from superpowers have been issued before. He explained, “We have received several terror alerts in the past, but because security is our top priority, we have successfully dealt with them. This time, we are equally prepared to handle any threats, as protecting Ugandans is our duty.”
