Ugandan leader assures Chinese ambassador H.E Zheng Zhu Quiang that the country's recent vigilantes are under control.

Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni has instructed the country's security force to ramp-up their protection of investors in industrial parks, amidst recent attacks on Chinese construction workers.

Museveni assured Chinese ambassador to Uganda, H.E Zheng Zhu Quiang that the urban crime problem that has plagued his government in the past few years, ‘is only temporary’. 

‘‘Tell the Government of China that I am personally handling this issue,’‘ Museveni reassured.

The Chinese envoy had expressed concerns over recent attacks on construction workers and investors in the districts of Mukono, Mityana and Zirobwe. Museveni, however insisted that he, ‘‘has directed the CDF and the IGP to beef up deployment in industrial parks, set up joint coordination councils between the investors and security forces to find a localized and non-political solution for these concerns."

Urban crime has plagued Museveni's reign, especially over the last few years that has seen political assassinations, kidnapping and murder of women, and attacks on investors.
