Several Universities have beefed up their security systems as a safety measure to prevent and control terrorist attacks that have eaten up the country in the past few months.
At Islamic University In Uganda(IUIU), security officers at the entrance check every bag of every student before entry. Several students who carried bags reported to the Lens Media that their bags were checked thoroughly.
In other universities like Makerere University Business School(MUBS) and Kyambogo University, the administration banned students from entering the university premises with back bags.
At Makerere University, small entry points are closed and the main gate is the only entry point.
It is not yet certain whether terrorist attacks will no longer be a threat by January 2022 as the president of Uganda H.E Yoweri Kaguta Museveni promised to fully open the country.
