Usuk County, Katakwi District Member of Parliament Hon. Peter Ogwang has given credit where it deserved by thanking president Museveni for his efforts towards the provision of security to the Pearl of Africa.
Speaking shortly after the presidential address in the August House, the former Youth representative said that no one should undermine the government’s efforts because of some shortcoming citing that much has been achieved but not being talked about.
Ogwang noted that the presidential 10-points strategy against criminality is a signal of hope that the ongoing security threats will soon become history.
He however calls upon all the security agencies and institutions to work hand in hand to that the great move is achieved.
“Our prayer is that the in line authorities implement the listed strategies to the letter as we look forward to a crime-free society. As Parliament, we are dedicated to help the President achieve this.” He stated via his tweeter account.
President Museveni Museveni on Wednesday addressed Parliament on an invitation by the Speaker Rt. Hon. Rebecca Kadaga.
Among the issues he vowed to give attention was to ensure that all guns are registered and fingerprinted so that it can always be easy to make follow up on which gun fired a bullet in case a crime is committed.
“I have issued an order through the security subcommittee that all guns should be finger printed so that we know which gun belongs to who.” Museveni noted.
He also added that government is going to require every motor vehicle or motor cycle to install number plates with electronic signals in them. This will enable easy detection of vehicles/motorcycles involved in crime and also deter tampering with them.
