Police have launched a manhunt for a group of
thugs accused of attacking a Chinese national and robbing him Shillings 63million
and US$ 4000 in Kampala.
The Deputy Kampala Metropolitan Police Spokesperson,
Luke Owoyesigyire identifies the robbery victim as Lu- Zincing, a cashier at
Omega Online limited and resident of Mukwano mall in Kampala.
Zincing was reportedly attacked on Wednesday evening
on his way from work place in Bugolobi city suburbs.

In his statement to police, Zincing claims that
he was riding on a motorcycle when a group of people riding on a motorcycle
surrounded him and started assaulting him.
They reportedly vanished with all the money he
was carrying from his workplace.

Railway Company in Bugolobi over the weekend and made off with an unspecified
amount of money.

of the motorbikes the suspects used in the robbery.
