LCs, national IDs will help fight terrorism

Following the Westgate mall siege in Nairobi, security has been tightened in Uganda. However, there is need for the government to reactivate local council structures. With the absence of the LC system, crime levels have surged. My humble request to the Minister of Local Government is that LC 1 elections should be held.
Furthermore, the government should fast-track the issuance of national identity cards, perhaps this will help to minimise crime in the country. Otherwise, it is difficult to fight acts of terrorism, especially given Uganda’s porous borders.
