Police have delivered new patrol motor bikes in Central Business District of Kampala to ensure security and also handle emergencies.

The three-seater bikes are stationed at several road junctions around Kampala.   

Police said they would ensure that drivers adhere to traffic regulations during and after the festive season.

Police tightened security ahead of Christmas and New Year festive seasons, warning that wrong elements could take advantage of the busy period to launch another terror attack on Uganda.

The Kampala Metropolitan Police spokesperson, Emilian Kayima, said that the police had beefed up security ahead of the major festive days to counter any possible terror strike.

In July 2010, the Al-Shabaab terrorists based in Somalia, with strong links to Al-Qaeda group claimed responsibility of two major suicide bombings on people watching the screening of the 2010 FIFA World Cup final at Kyadondo Rugby Grounds and the Ethiopian Village Restaurant in Kabalagala, a Kampala city suburb. At least over 78 people perished in the two incidents.
