Steven Ssemugonde


Just hours after President Yoweri Museveni informed the nation that he had instructed the Deputy Inspector General of Police, Maj.Gen. Sabiiti Muzeeyi to come up with a comprehensive plan on how to curb the increasing city gangs that have terrorized Kampala, Wakiso and Mukono, another young man was killed last night in Bulindo in Kira Municipality.

Steven Ssemugonde estimated to be aged 27 years an instructor with one of the driving schools founded by his father was hit by iron bar hit men at his gate in a place called Kapeera in Bulindo.

Kira, Kasangati, Najjera, Kyanja, Kungu, Nansana are among the areas thugs have invaded and giving residents sleepless nights.

“I have given two days to Commander Sabiiti of the Police to come out with a plan to combat these gangs. The IGP is away in Peru for a meeting. I will look at that plan, comment on it and it will, then, be communicated to all of you,” he says in his brief message posted on social media

“It is easy to defeat these gangs. Their crimes will only add to the credit of the NRM because we are going to defeat them. Yet, the People have already seen the bankruptcy and the criminality of these groups and those who back them,” The president said.

Contrary to his orders there is no sign on ground to assure the public that the situation will change soon for the better. Bulindo isn’t far from the home of Assistant Inspector of Police (AIGP) Grace Akullo who also heads Criminal Investigations Directorate (CID).
