Ugandan government is planning to install spy cameras in Kampala and Entebbe ahead of the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM) slated for late November this year.

The Minister of State for Local Government Hope Mwesigye was quoted by state-owned New Vision on Friday saying that the Closed Circuit TV cameras would be installed to monitor security, detect and stop crime.
The cameras are estimated to cost over two billion Ugandan shillings (12.5 million U.S. dollars), according to the police.

The plan, jointly developed by the police and other security agencies, would help authorities apprehend people who demolish structures put in place as part of the beautification exercise, Mwesigye said. "The culprits will be apprehended and dealt with."

According to Mwesigye, the beautification exercise for CHOGM, estimated at 3.8 billion shillings (2.4 million dollars), is at least 75 percent complete and the remaining part will be completed well before CHOGM.

Landscaping and planting grass and flowers was going on, while the beautification of open parks is expected to start this week, Mwesigye, the exercise includes cleaning drainage as well as repairing public toilets.

Mwesigye also announced an August 31 deadline for people to vacate the road reserve along Entebbe Road, which connects capital city of Kampala and the airport at Entebbe, and Gaba Road leading to the main venue of the summit.
