Security minister says terror threats are real

Security minister Muruli Mukasa has asked members of the general public to take the terror alerts seriously.

This comes days after the police issued a fresh terror alert warning of an impending attack by Alshabaab terrorists.

The alerts have however been down played by many members of the public who think it is a mere gimmick.

Now addressing journalists at parliament the security minister Muruli Mukasa said this is not a joke and the threat is real.

He asks the opposition to avoid politicizing issues of security.
