Now with over 5000 delegates set to jet into the country to attend the NAM summit this week and the G77+China Summit next week at the same venue of Munyonyo Convention Centre, police has issued directives to security companies which they should adhere to during the time when the visitors are around.

According to a letter seen by this publication addressed to all private security companies, police has banned the movement of security guards with guns in the Kampala Metropolitan area and instead the guards should find the firearms at their station of duty in a rotational mode where the outgoing guard hands over the gun to the incoming guard.

“All private security organizations deploying guards in the Kampala Metropolitan Area are hereby notified that due to the high level Summits that the government of Uganda is Hosting this month, there is a ban on movement private security guards with fire arms from 12th January 2024 to the end of January 2024”-reads part of the letter.
