Initial reports indicate that unknown gunmen moving in a numberless motorcycle, ambushed and robbed the Zawadi bus registration number UAV 335W which was traveling from Kampala to Elegu border post in Amuru. The attack was carried out last evening at Wiliwili, 2 kilometers to Bibia trading centre.
The driver of the bus Sirage Mubiru says the thugs forced him to open the door and ordered him to drive the bus towards Kituuntu swamp a few kilometres to Uganda Martyrs University-Nkozi off the main highway.
Police in Ntungamo have arrested three people suspected to be behind a series of high way robberies along the Kagamba- Ishaka road. The three were arrested on Monday following a failed attempted robbery on a Kagadi- Kabale horizon bus at Kitondo, Kagamba where another bus was robbed on Thursday last week.
