Ugandan security officers were pictured ‘conducting body search on women for dangerous devices before the match between Uganda cranes vz Burkina Faso at Namboole stadium Kampala and the pictures have been making rounds since they were published on social media.
In the pictures of the football fans entering a stadium which have gone viral on social media, the officers could be seen getting some feels from the abnormal grabbing – as they are visibly grabbing fans’ private parts.
While Uganda’s match ended without a single reported terror or violent incident, many are now urging Kenyan police to adopt this idea.
This was after Kenya’s game against Guinea-Bissau on Sunday afternoon was marred for almost half an hour, with police wrestling rowdy fans who were hurling missiles onto the pitch. Some of the missiles included water bottles that fans had carried into the stadium and other materials.
Kenyan’s police have been called to emulate their Ugandan counterparts especially when it comes to securing sports venues, citing that the seemingly frisky search technique in Uganda gave rise to a peaceful match which ended without any incident.

People look on as extreme body search is done manually on a woman
With this kind of body search, any hidden material would be unveiled no matter where it is hidden right? Yes it is clear. But there are several screening machines that can be used. While it is right to conduct thorough body search to avoid people smuggling harmful and deadly objects inside the pitch, some security detecting gadgets could also be used. We don’t see this type of search happening in advanced countries.
