The Inspector General of Police (IGP) Martin Okoth Ochola has said police is going to engage Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA) to forge a way forward regarding the implementation of the presidential directive regarding the ban on hoody jackets by bodaboda motorists, as one more measure to curtail murders in urban areas.
President Museveni told mourners in Lukudu village during the burial of Abiriga that some wrong elements use hoodies on their jackets to disguise themselves after committing a crime.
The security leaders were briefing the Country on the security situation in Country as murders and cases of kidnap continue to escalate. The latest victim of these murders was Arua Municipality legislator, Hon.Ibrahim Abiriga who was gunned down on friday last week together with his brother in Kawanda, Wakiso district.
Ochola said that soon the police is going to launch an operation to clamp down on riders that will wear hoods and those without marked helmets.
Meanwhile the minister of internal affairs Gen.Jeje Odongo says government is going to regulate tints on private vehicles for anti-crime purposes.
Odong said indiscriminate use of tinted glass in private cars is makes it easy for criminals to accomplish their evil missions such as kidnaps.
