President Museveni has been asked to use tonight’s address to assure the public that the security forces are able to handle the current situation in the country.
Solomon Asiimwe, a security expert and lecturer of International Relations at Nkumba University, says the president’s address should answer why there are such threats in the first place.
According to the Presidential Press Unit, the president is this evening expected to address the nation on security matters and other issues of national importance.
The president’s address comes days after revelations by the police that they had recovered and detonated about six Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDS) in Kampala before they caused harm to the public.
The recovery of the IEDs saw police issue a terror alert on Monday this week, urging the public to be vigilant.
13 people have since been arrested in connection with the latest terror threats.
