The incident occurred at around 1.a.m. at Kagezi trading centre, about 12 kilometres South of Masaka Town. Victims of the attack told Uganda Raio Network that about six people dressed in camouflaged uniform stopped vehicles at the illegally erected roadblock and ordered passengers to surrender all their belongings.
ICC Prosecutor Fatou Bensouda Omar Al Bashir recently traveled to countries that recognize the International Criminal Court ICC but none arrested or surrendered the Sudanese President. The list included Uganda, Russia, Jordan and Chad, a country which had been referred to the Security Council for non-compliance on in 2011 and 2013.
