Police have arrested four people for assaulting Kayunga Deputy District Resident Commissioner James Musonohole Mukose.

Mukose, together with his driver Stanley Nsamba and other community leaders, were attacked by an angry mob at Kyelima in Kitimbwa sub-county where they had gone to stop a land sensitization meeting organized by the Cultural leader of the Banyala community in Kayunga Maj. Baker Kimeze.

Nsamba, one of the victims of the attack explains that the Deputy RDC had gone to the area to caution the community about misleading information about land wrangles in the area and that the Ssabanyala’s convoy arrived at the scene about 10 minutes after their arrival and found Mukose addressing the community gathering.

Within a twinkle of an eye, a group of youths stormed the meeting and ordered the RDC to vacate the place. Several other people were assaulted in the ensuing scuffle. Hellen Butoto, the Ssezibwa Regional Police Spokesperson says that the Police mounted a search for the attackers and arrested the four while trying to cross the Ssezibwa bridge from Kayunga heading to Kampala last night.

Baker Kimeze, the Ssabanyala, has denied involvement in the incident in a telephone interview with URN. Although police confirm that he was on the ground at the time of the incident, Kimeze says he only heard about the incident.

Cue out…about it also.”//                 

Since last night, Mukose’s contacts have been off. However, Ssempala Kigozi, the Resident District Commissioner has told URN that his deputy is safe. “...It is mainly his security guards, driver and other community leaders that were severely assaulted,” the RDC said.
