KAYIHURA WARNS OF PLOT TO BURN CITY!!!!

The Inspector General of Police Kale Kayihura has cautioned the public about plans by some terrorist groups to set certain structures in Kampala on fire.

Addressing journalists, Maj General Kayihura said Police has information about a group of people in Kiseka market who have been hired by terrorist groups operating internationally to torch the city.

Gen Kayihura said members of the public should be vigilant, and should report strange and suspicious persons in their communities. He said Police was on high alert in the targeted places. The IGP also warned politicians, business people and religious leaders of kidnapping, which he says is a new form of terrorism targeting them. This follows the foiled kidnap of Thakkar Ketter Kumar of the Indian Gujarat community. He was rescued by Police Special Investigations Unit. Ms Kumar, a business lady at Old Kampala was kidnapped a few days ago by Rafaqa Mohammed of Pakistani origin. Kayihura said the suspect belongs to an 8 member Pakistani terrorist group led by Sarafraz Anwal from Peshawar, who had requested for a $ 70,000 ransom to be wired to Pakistan and are also wanted by the International Police. Rafaqa entered the country in February 2012 on a student’s Visa programme and has been masking as a Kampala International University student.
