Police’s Chief Political Commissar Asan Kasingye says that that the Uganda Police Force has resolved to make it mandatory for all commercial accommodation centres to share names of all people they accommodate to nearby police stations on a daily basis.  

Kasingye said that the shared names shall be used by intelligence agencies for proper documentation of individuals hosted in a given community, where they came from and their next destination.     /Cue in; “The ideology of our...   Cue out…at LC1 level.”//  

  Similarly, Kasingye said police are also going to help all Local Council Ones –LC1 Chairpersons have village WhatsApp groups for all residents that have smart phones including commanders of nearby police stations.  

The police believe that Village WhatsApp groups will enable members to alert their leadership in time and improve the response time to alerts shared by members.  

At least more 30 homes and factories have been raided by armed gangs in Kampala and its outskirts in recent weeks.
