Abubakar Musoke and Aron Mpirirwe, both residents of the area blame the high rate of crime in Isingiro to laxity by the LCs to follow up on strangers.  They claim there are many strangers in the area claiming to be looking for jobs. John Katera, the LC I chairperson of Nyamabare trading centre says the problem has been worsened by unemployed youths in the area, who spent the entire playing pool and resort to crime at night.

 

In March 2013, four members of the same family were shot dead and two injured critically in Kasenyi village in Kyampango parish, Rugaaga Sub County in Isingiro district over suspected land conflict.
