Finance Minister, Matia Kasaija has said his Ministry has no money to purchase CCTV security cameras to be installed in major towns and highways.

Following the gruesome murder of the former Spokesperson of the Uganda Police Force, AIGP Andrew Felix Kaweesi last week , President Yoweri Museveni issued a policy statement to the effect that government is planning to install surveillance cameras in Kampala and other parts of the country.

Kasaija while answering questions from journalists at the Media Centre in Kampala said there is no money for the camera. He hastily added that the money can be got.

He said the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Uganda Police were yet to hand him the cost and quantity of the CCTV camera.

The President’s CCTV camera directive has generated mixed response from the general public and some government officials.
