Before leaving for Kyotera District to join the country in Independence Day celebrations, President Museveni went through Nateete Police Station in Kampala to inspect the CCTV project.
In his recent addresses on security, Museveni indicated that the government would undertake this project to fight urban crime.
The cameras are now up and running, he said.
“The Banyankole advise that if you hear footsteps behind you, do not just run without seeing the source of the noise. You might be running away from a mere cock.”
Christians also know the story of how the disciples were panicking when they were crossing the lake, as Jesus slept. When he woke up, he wondered why they had little faith, he said, quoting the bible.
The president noted that the problem of urban insecurity perpetuated by armed assassins riding boda bodas will be solved.
“What we needed were eyes, ears and a nose to sense them. It’s what the cameras will do. Once we see these criminals, we shall get them.”
This problem is not as complex as fighting a war for example, he explained, adding that it is an issue of intelligence.
“We just need to know who did what. Once we know, these thugs cannot resist us. The game will be finished. Cowards die many times before their death.”
