Police Warn Ugandans On Terrorism Ahead Of Cranes Game

The Director of Police Operations, Andrew Felix Kaweesi has cautioned Ugandans to be very vigilant on Saturday during a 2015 Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon) qualifier between Uganda Cranes and Ghana.


He referred to the recent terror attack on the Inspector General of Somalia who was killed in Mogadishu.

Kaweesi said the terrorists have now changed face and style of operation and all Ugandans should therefore be very alert. The officer also asked Ugandans with political affiliations not to express their sentiments at the Mandela National Stadium, Namboole.

Speaking to the media at the Mandela National Stadium on Thursday, Kaweesi also called upon management of the Stadium and the Federation of Uganda Football Association (FUFA) to make sure the stadium only admits the capacity of 45,000 and not more.

He said last month the Stadium admitted more people during the Togo game which was not a good because it could cause several deaths.

He promised that the security to be deployed at the Stadium will be more robust than last month when Cranes hosted Togo. He called on Ugandans not to take chances when they come to cheer the Cranes on Saturday.

Moses Magogo, the Fufa President said he was confident the team would perform well because they have prepared well enough. He called on Ugandans to come in big numbers and cheer the team to victory.

Cranes are third in Group E and badly need to win the games against Ghana and Guinea to qualify for the 2015 Afcon showpiece.
