EDITOR—Lately, there has been an increase in crime in all parts of the country. These crimes range from murder, theft, assault and corruption. This is happening in some parts with impunity! Kampala, for example, is slipping back into its pre-CHOGM insecurity and is becoming a haven for criminals.

EDITOR—Lately, there has been an increase in crime in all parts of the country. These crimes range from murder, theft, assault and corruption. This is happening in some parts with impunity! Kampala, for example, is slipping back into its pre-CHOGM insecurity and is becoming a haven for criminals.

Organised groups of thugs have taken over control of some parts of Kampala where they freely terrorise residents and pedestrians.

The most notorious examples are Lugogo by-pass near Game Store and all the neighbouring areas, Clock tower area, Biwologoma and 7th street. I must commend some of our security organs like the Rapid Response Unit. But there are some who behave in a strange manner.

Sometimes when the police number 999 is called, it is not answered.

If this number is no longer operational, the public should be informed about the alternative. What happened to the CHOGM vigilance?
