Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni has cautioned World Cup fans to be alert as they enjoy football bearing in mind that the country is threatened by terror attacks from the Somalia based militant group Al Shabaab.
The President made the remarks last evening while addressing press at his country home Rwakitura.
He called on security organs to be vigilant and screen everyone watching so as to avoid events that occurred in 2010 where at least 74 people were killed in twin bombings at Kyadondo Rugby Club Kampala as they watched World Cup.
UBC TV Uganda has already acquired exclusive rights to broadcast FIFA World Cup 2014 which will be held Brasil courtesy of President Museveni.
At the same press briefing, President Museveni updated the media on the IGAD meeting held in Addis Ababa Ethiopia on South Sudan saying, “ Uganda went to South Sudan to stop the collapse of the country and stop the killing in Juba. We wanted our South Sudanese brothers to have a chance to build their country. Now they have agreed on a joint interim government, then they will go into elections. We shall work with whoever wins”
