An unidentified man has been lynched by a mob in Busia district after he was suspected of stealing a motorcycle in Busia District. 

The man was intercepted with the motorcycle, registration number KMDG 664X, which he was using to cross into Uganda through a porous entry at Alupe village this afternoon.

He was stopped by a group comprising both Ugandan and Kenyan nationals who pelted him with stones. Patrick Lule, the Busia District Operation Commander says that the suspect had breathed his last by the time police arrived.   

//Cue in; zibadde sawa nga...  

Cue out.... netugutwalla mu mortuary.”// 

Lule noted that Police has registered overwhelming cases of motorcycle thefts which they are now investigating. However, he appealed to residents to desist from mob justice but report any suspected person to the authorities.  

//Cue in; tukubiriza abantu baffe... 

Cue out...eyokubba boda-boda.”//   

But Charles Hajuba, a Boda-boda rider in Busia town says that a number of people are disguising themselves as criminals in order to abet crime.
