IP? Elly Maate, the Kigezi regional police spokesperson, while speaking to the press, said that now that his burial arrangements are underway, which will bring in many dignitaries of different caliber, security agencies have issued guidelines to ensure the safety and peace of mourners.

Maate asked the public including those that will be in church service and at burial ground at home to exhibit a high level of discipline and keep cooperative with the security personnel to continuously follow instructions as given from time to time for the smooth burial exercise.

He warned the public to stay security-conscious, vigilant enough, and practice neighborhood watch with each other to prevent any intended ill motive of any kind from any wrong person.
