CP Enanga

Police has confirmed that Makindye West MP Allan Sswanyana and Kawempe North Legislator Muhammad Ssegirinya have been commanding the panga wielding men who have been hacking people in Masaka greater region.

Through the speaker of Parliament Jacob Oulanyah, the two were last week summoned and directed to appear before Masaka Police CID and record statements about statements they made about the gruesome killings of people in Masaka greater region.

Speaking earlier today, CP Fred Enanga said the summoning of the two based on statements recorded by various suspects who were arrested in relation to heinous murders in the region.

“We zero on them based of Suspects admissions indicating how they recruited and taken through the clearly designed plans at a meeting they held at Ndeba that was aimed at creating atrocity against the elderly victims in the selected districts,” Enanga said.

“The suspects indicated to us how they were promised wealth as a motivating factor and it was under the command of the two politicians that victims were hacked and beaten to death,” he said.

At least 26 people had been killed by Panga wielding assailants in the Masaka greater region. The assailants target people above the age of 50 and leaving alone or with children.

On September 1, 2021, Masaka Chief Magistrates Court remanded 10 suspects implicated in the killings. Police confirmed the 11 more suspects will appear today or tomorrow before court.
