Internal Security Organisation Director General Col. Kaka Bagyenda might have released Paddy Sserunjogi aka Sobi from Luzira prison to help him track criminals causing havoc in the Kampala’s suburbs, but that hasn’t deterred them from coming onto the scene.
As we talk residents of the leafy Minister’s Village in Ntinda are the latest to be victims the ever growing criminality that has left police and other agencies seeking for solutions. Minister village is known for its top of the range residents and it prides itself to the fact that it is one big village with the highest number of cabinet members.
On Monday, a gentleman known as Henry Kahiire was attacked by thugs on Kyambogo view road in Minister Village at about 10 pm and beaten into coma.
Kahiire is currently on life support at Nsambya hospital. Crime along most Ntinda areas has increased with most of them using boda-bodas during peak hours. The most notorious spot where these thugs operate from is Canon road. However, what makes it interesting is that Canon road is where Minister of Information Communication Technologies, Frank Tumuwebaze resides and also houses the home of late Maj. Gen. Levy Karuhanga. Both homes are guarded by counter terrorism officers of Uganda police and soldiers of military police but with the presence of such well-guarded homes, it hasn’t prevented thugs from attacking civilians on that road.
Eagle Online has also learnt that in a bid to monitor possible targets, thugs now operate outside and around the Old Timer bar waiting for party goers as they retire back.
