The Inspector General of Police, Martins Okoth Ochola, has called on Ugandans to be security cautious but also follow the Covid-19 Standard Operating Procedures.
“Just like last year, we continue to celebrate the festive season amidst the unprecedented challenges of COVID-19, and impact on many families, businesses and communities across the country. It has meant many sacrifices in the daily lives of many Ugandans and visitors. We are currently, faced with another significant risk of the new Omicron variant, which if we do not take seriously, will cost us many more lives and other health risks,”Ochola said.
Ochola, while giving his Christmas message, said the joint security agencies will be ready to protect them and their property to make sure they enjoy the Christmas festivities.
He cited the ongoing operations targeting Allied Democratic Forces cells in the country that he said are meant to ensure everyone in the country is safe, noting that such operations will continue.
