Uganda: Police to 'shoot to kill' attackers

Amid rising insecurity in the country, the police says it has recovered eight guns and 1,300 bullets. And now they will take a shoot-to-kill approach to thugs, write ZURAH NAKABUGO and JOHNSON TAREMWA

Police says it has recovered a gun and 600 bullets from five suspected thugs, after a raid on a garage in Bakuli, Kampala, on Sunday.

Denis Mangusho, Yusuf Jingo, Jafaali Ddembe, Fred Matovu, and Frank Jumbe reportedly confessed to using the gun in last month’s theft of Shs 200m belonging to Africana forex bureau on Jinja road, Kampala.

Police spokesman Fred Enanga said the suspects stole the money on December 17 from a bullion van on Access road in Kampala. The money was being moved from Bank of Africa to Africana forex bureau.

“The robbers may have connived with some workers inside Bank of Africa because they hit the bullion van and it stopped immediately after leaving the bank. They [stole] Shs 200m out of Shs 300m that was being transported,” he said.

Nobody was hurt during the robbery and the thugs abandoned their vehicles at the scene and fled on boda boda motorcycles.
