An angry mob has killed David Ssemambo, the most wanted gang leader in Wobulenzi town council in Luweero district. The mob members descended on Ssemambo alias Mambo at Wobulenzi Police Station following his arrest this morning.

He had just been picked up together with his aides including Dalton Muyomba, Charles Ssettoke, Farouk Kigozi Ashraf and Alex Ssebunya. They were reportedly arrested with machetes that they have been using to attack and rob residents.  

Residents of Wobulenzi town council have been in fear of attacks from the gang members since last year. The gangsters had plotted to rob a local hardware shop in Wobulenzi on Tuesday night but information leaked to police, which has been pursuing them.   

 

Abraham Tukundane, the Luweero District Police Commander, says the five gangsters were arrested from Bombo town council after tip off and were transferred to Wobulenzi Police Station around 7am this morning to answer several criminal charges.

Tukundane explains that Ssemambo attempted to flee but residents surrounded him and stoned him. He breathed his last while being rushed to Luweero Hospital. Residents stormed the Police station demanding that police hands over the remaining four suspects for lynching in vain. 

Tukundane, who describes Ssemambo as a notorious gang, says his murder is a signal to the end of the gang.

Last week, gangsters struck leaving two people injured and others crying foul after they stole their property. In December last year, two people including a student of Bukalasa Agriculture College were burnt to death when they were rounded up by residents in a crackdown on the gang members.     

Ssemambo narrowly survived arrest after his members used knives to attack residents who had rounded him. Last year, Police registered 462 cases in Wobulenzi, some of which were attributed on the gang.
