ENTEBBE. President Yoweri Museveni has re-assured investors that there will be permanent security assigned to Industrial Park areas and factories.

He was meeting the Chinese Ambassador to Uganda, Mr. Zheng Zhu Qiang, who called on him at State House Entebbe.

The envoy had expressed concern over recent attacks by thugs on Chinese investors.

“Some thugs have been attacking Chinese investors but we shall defeat them. This is temporary, shallow and shall be defeated. There were attacks in Mukono and Mityana; one experienced by the Gayaza Road construction company and the recent one in Zirobwe. The security of Uganda is very good but urban insurgency was not paid attention to. Tell the Government of China that I am personally handling this issue,” Mr. Museveni told the envoy.

The President issued a directive to security officials that attended the meeting, who included the Chief of the Defence Forces, Gen. David Muhoozi and Assistant Inspector General of Police, Brigadier Muzeeyi Sabiiti, to form an operational security committee that would seek a joint co-ordination with the Chinese community.

The President added that there should be area-to-area security operations with the deployment of at least twelve security officials with arms and vehicles in Industrial Park areas.

For Isolated factories, the President recommended the deployment of four policemen. He warned the Police against corrupt individuals adding that culprits should be removed such that the government can employ other young people who are looking for jobs.

President Museveni advised Chinese investors to desist from keeping huge sums of money in their factories to avoid being robbed by workers. He promised to visit their factories soon to check on the progress.
