Man Creates Stir at Immigration Office: Brings Brother Cobra in Bag

KAMPALA, (UG)-Tension ensued on Monday of the 18th December,2023 after it was revealed that a smartly dressed man recently showed up at the immigration offices in Kampala with a snake in his bag.

According to Simon Peter Mundeyi, the spokesperson of the Internal Affairs ministry, the strange man, upon being questioned on his intention, said the dangerous reptile (a black cobra) is his “brother” and that he moves around with it wherever he goes.

Speaking during a press briefing in Naguru, Kampala yesterday, Mundeyi said they have overtime intercepted people carrying all types of strange items, adding that the security personnel handled the recent matter well. He however wondered how a sane Ugandan seeking services of passports at the ministry behaved himself such.

Mundeyi also cautioned the general public not to carry huge bags any other thing that may be seen as a security threat to immigration, citing limited space.

There have been reports of some communities in the country living in harmony with reptiles and other pets.
