Police have said the country has had a largely peaceful Christmas season with only a few incidents of crime registered across the country.
Police spokesperson, Mr Fred Enanga told Daily Monitor yon Friday that although there has been a general increase in activity and traffic flow in the country, few criminal incidents have been registered in Kampala and across the country compared to previous festive seasons.
“Having only two murders and six fatal accidents across the country is something minor, given the increased traffic flow and activities. You would say we have had largely peaceful Christmas,” Mr Enanga said.
According to police, there were two targeted murders and six fatal road accidents that claimed about seven people on Christmas day.
“Even in Kampala metropolitan where the rate of crime is always high during Christmas, we haven’t registered any serious incidents and we are maintaining police visibility to ensure that security is maintained,” Mr Enanga added.
Mr Enanga further said, “We hope that the year ends peacefully because the security infrastructure across the country will be maintained.”
One would expect a high level of crimes but this has been contained with the increased deployment and presence of security personnel, at least according to the police spokesperson.
