On July 6th, Kayongo lost his pistol to a group of thugs that disguised as soldiers of Special Forces Command-SFC. They claimed that they were an advance team deployed ahead of President Museveni's visit to Kyotera district.
According to Kayongo's statements to Police, he stopped his car to provide the necessary assistance to a group of military uniformed men who looked stranded by the roadside in Kaliisizo trading centre. However, they instead robbed him on gunpoint and disappeared with his gun.
Lameck Kigozi, the Greater Masaka Deputy Regional Commander and the local police spokesperson says that PSU has taken over investigations into the incident. He also says joint-security agencies are hunting for the missing gun.
However, Kayongo is still serving as DPC despite the incident.
Kigozi says police is still gathering enough evidence into the incident before determining Kayongo's fate.
//Cue in; ‘it's true the DPC is….
Cue out; ...leaving that fact.”//
//Cue in; “okunonyereza kwonna kukolebwa……
Cue out….kusoka kuddako bbali.”//
Lameck notes that the loss of the pistol brings the number to four guns that have been stolen from security personnel in the area in a period of six months.
