As the nation eagerly awaits President Museveni’s address tonight, one prominent security expert, Solomon Asiimwe, who also serves as a lecturer in International Relations at Nkumba University, emphasizes the importance of the President using this opportunity to reassure the public about the capabilities of the security forces in handling the current situation in the country.
Mr. Asiimwe believes that the President’s address should not only focus on current security threats but also provide insights into the root causes of these threats, shedding light on why they have emerged in the first place.
The Presidential Press Unit has confirmed that the President will indeed address the nation tonight, discussing security matters and other issues of national significance.
This address follows recent revelations by the police regarding their successful recovery and controlled detonation of approximately six Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) in Kampala, preventing any harm to the public. The discovery of these IEDs prompted the police to issue a terror alert earlier this week, urging citizens to remain vigilant.
In response to the terror alert, law enforcement has apprehended 13 individuals who are allegedly linked to the latest terror threats.
The President’s address is eagerly anticipated as the nation seeks not only reassurance but also a deeper understanding of the security situation and measures being taken to address it.
