Hotels asked to submit their guest lists to police everyday

Police have directed all hotels, lodges and guest houses in Kampala, Uganda to be submitting their guest lists everyday.

According to Ugandan law enforcement, this move is mandatory for hoteliers in order to help fight urban crime.

Police chief political commissar Asan Kasingye stated that the guest list will be used by intelligence agencies.

Officers will know where guests come from and their next destination to help curb urban crime in the East African country.

Hoteliers register people

You will make sure hoteliers register people every morning and take that list to the nearest station so that the intelligence can make something out of that,” Mr Kasingye said.

Kasingye said police are also going to help all Local Council Ones (LCI) Chairpersons have village WhatsApp groups for all residents which will have police commanders.

Police believe that Village WhatsApp groups will enable members to alert their leadership in time and improve the response time to alerts shared by members.

At least 30 homes and factories have been raided by armed gangs in Kampala and its outskirts in recent weeks.
