The July 11, 2010 Kampala bomb blasts did not only leave 74 people dead but have also had adverse effects on the lifestyle of people leaving in Kampala in particular and the country at large.
Increased Security in Public Places
There is increased security in all public places ranging from Taxi and Bus parks, Churches, Discotheques and Shopping Malls. This has not been the case before the Sunday bombs but now one has to under go long queues to access certain services as there is thorough checking at most of the points.
Tightened Airport Security
The airport security has equally been tightened resulting in increased check in hours from the previous two hours to now three hours. The vehicles driving into the airport are even subjected to more checking than they were before the bombs which means spending more hours on the road.
Some Kampala bars like Iguana have closed until Monday as they beef up their security to be able to measure up with the new security demands. Fat Boyz was open but with a handful of customers since Monday.
Low Sales For Supermarkets
Uchumi Supermarket which is very busy on a good day has equally been less busy as customers are in some sort of self curfew. Accessing some of these places now requires more time than before as there is rigorous checking of all the cars and yet entry points to these places are limited. All passengers have to leave the car as a metal detector is used on them to be sure they are not armed.
Overnight Prayer Banned
There has been a tendency of born again Christians praying throughout the night but this act has been banned in the wake of last Sunday bombs that left over 70 people dead. All Christians to these churches will have to be registered and whoever enters the church must be checked thoroughly. Prayers should not go beyond midnight.
Upcountry Discotheques Risk Closure
In Masaka for example all Discotheques have been ordered to install metal detectors or risk to be closed.
As all that goes on, there is minimum activity within Kampala. If anything there has been more activity on bomb scares with sniffer dogs and bomb squads responding to all calls made to them from the public which is now more vigilant and alert and not about to take any situation for granted.

Not long back, when Zari was explaining how she hit the rocks with King Bae, who turned out to be romance scammer, she said that it is not about money when it comes to dating her, so even the not so loaded guys were welcome to give it a try, but looking at her new lover, GK Choppa, he seems to be wearing two faces, in him you see a combination of her late hubby and Diamond Platnumz.
