The 2024 NAM/G77 +China summits that is primary taking place at Speke Resort Munyonyo, has kicked off peacefully, without any untoward incidents of security concern. Several Heads of State from the NAM countries, in addition to thousands of foreign and local dignitaries, staff, journalists are in attendance, amidst very strict security and safety measures.
The safety and security measures are continuing to be reviewed and implemented around the venues, routes, the surrounding areas. Access to the venues, has been restricted to accredited individuals only.
Additional safety measures are being implemented at Entebbe International Airport and in the city to facilitate the arrival of high level dignitaries, constant monitoring of the spaces, regulated movements of traffic, countering all forms of breach of peace, random search of people and vehicles as a precautionary measure, among others.
We also would like to advise the public especially those around summit venues to allow considerable extra time for travel, as increased security measures may cause disruptions. They should, plan alternative routes..
From the Joint Security point of view, the heightened security is a MUST considering the number of guests and dignitaries.
