Police in Luweero have intensified operations to curb crimes and accidents ahead of the Christmas festivities. Police has intensified its presence along Kampala-Gulu highway and launched operations to impound cars that breach the traffic guidelines. 

There are also increased night patrols especially in town councils in Luweero, Nakaseke and Nakasongola districts. Lameck Kigozi, the Savannah Regional Police Spokesperson says due to the Christmas excitement, people tend to break traffic regulations.

Samuel Mubiru, a driver at Luweero Taxi Park blames the road accidents on the lack of road signs and delays to tow vehicles that break down on the road. Police has also beefed up foot and vehicle patrols especially at the boarders of Wakiso and Luweero, Nakaseke and Wakiso districts to intercept livestock thieves.

 

Livingstone Kategeya, the LC 3 Chairperson of Kamira Sub County says his leadership has allocated Shillings 450,000 to Police officers for fuel to intensify patrols against animal thefts during this season. He says they have also formed village security committees and organised meetings to sensitise residents on vigilance during the festive season.
