Uganda Police Force has the best fire department in central and east Africa – Patrick Onyango
The Kampala Metropolitan Police Spokesperson, Patrick Onyango has said that Uganda Police Force has the best fire department in Central and East Africa that can contain any serious fire.
Onyango was responding to Ugandans who have been saying that the fire department is ill-equipped and cannot respond appropriately to inferno outbreaks after Makerere University’s main building – Ivory Tower caught fire over the weekend.
Onyango notes that right now the department can fight a fire on a 12 storied building with modern equipment.
The Kampala Metropolitan Deputy Spokesperson Luke Owoyesigire, also said all regions with police stations have fire departments and active emergency phones.
