In Kampala metropolitan areas, Police and -UPDF said they have registered more than four incidents in the past one week of civilians attacking security personnel enforcing the curfew time that starts at 6:00pm for motorbikes and 7:00pm for all vehicles and persons, with intention of disarming or injuring them.
Police Spokesperson, Fred Enanga, has now indicated that investigators have concluded that charges of aggravated robbery and attempted murder are befitting the gang because they also robbed victims with machetes. Another offence police have preferred against the accused persons is repeated conspiracy to commit crimes.
According to the preliminary assessment, the rains destroyed 16 houses in Lugazi and 36 in Mpatta Sub County. Some of the affected gardens belong to teachers and university students who opted for farming due to the lockdown.
