President Yoweri Museveni has promised to improve the capacity of CCTV cameras to be able to smell explosives and help security detect and monitor potential suicide bombers.

“Those cameras can now see the wrongdoers. The scientists now tell me that we can add a capacity to those cameras so that they can smell anyone carrying explosives and alert the security forces.”

Museveni said Saturday that there is that project that Security minister Jim Muhwezi and friends were working on.

“Where we can digitally monitor cars and motorcycles. I saw some people fighting about contracts, but we aren’t interested in contracts. We are interested in security. This project should go ahead.”

He added: “We have gadgets that can sniff out explosives but they are being used on individual buildings. I am told that they can be mass applied. They can be installed on cameras to sniff out those carrying bombs.”

Museveni said nobody will disturb the peace of Uganda and anybody who tries will perish because the army is strong.

The President said the problem is some confused youth who have been radicalised and some neighbouring countries who can’t control their affairs. He also cited the poor internal intelligence sector in towns, which has lagged behind.

“Internally, we have lagged behind about intelligence in towns to discover who is planning and where it is happening. The terror has shifted from the rural areas to towns where there are bigger populations and many buildings. Security in town is intelligence-based. We have moved very well so far. We have got videos of those who had the bombs because of the cameras. Now we need to do more.”

“Cameras are eyes, I have heard that you can also put noses in the cameras (Install sensors) which can smell the bombs and send an alert. The idea that they can be on the street is a good one. These terrorists, we shall finish them. They are wasting their time, they will be defeated,” he said earlier while presiding over the pass-out ceremony of 443 tank crew grandaunts who have been undergoing a one-year training at the Karama Armoured Warfare Training School in Kabamba, Mudende District.
