Odongo noted that the distribution of examination materials was smoothly done using 22 routes asserting that Officers from the Field Force Unit of the Uganda Police are providing security on all the routes to ensure that the materials are safe.

He also explains that a total of 114 district monitors and 9,216 scouts have been deployed as well as unspecified number of security personnel to operate overtly and covertly to ensure the examination is conducted in accordance with the Regulations on Conduct of Examinations.

We wish them success.
