MUBS bans bags on campus. Businesses at the main gate suspended

MUBS becomes the second education institution and public university to ban bags within its premises over terror attacks.

MUBS becomes the second education institution and public university to ban bags within its premises over terror attacks.

Uganda was left in shock on Tuesday after three suicide bombers killed three people including two police officers leaving many injured and sent members of parliament running for cover.

The blasts forced the evacuation of parliament, shocked a nation known as a bulwark against violent Islamist militants in East Africa, and whose leader has spent years cultivating Western security support.

Islamic State claimed responsibility via the group’s Amaq News Agency on an affiliated Telegram account. The nicknames of the three attackers indicated all were Ugandan.

The death toll including the three bombers was six, police spokesperson Fred Enanga said, including police officers. A diplomat told Reuters two police officers were killed.

As a security measure, Makerere University Business School (Mubs) Police Station has banned students from carrying bags into the university’s precincts and also suspends businesses at the main gate.

In a statement, “Bags have been declared a serious security threat to students and non-students during this harsh period. Therefore, this is to inform all students that with Effect from 17th November 2021 (Wednesday) security will not allow bags to enter MUBS gates until further notice,” the OC MUBS police station notified the community.

“All businesses carried out at the main gate are also suspended,” the OC added.
