Unknown Gunmen Rob Mobile Money Agent in Mayuge

Nambi says that assailants fled through a feeder road connecting Magamaga town council to Musita-Lumino highway but residents were hesitant to pursue them since they were armed.
Police have launched a manhunt for unknown gunmen accused of robbing Shillings 3 million from Jacqueline Nambi, a mobile money operator in Nakasero zone, in Magamaga town council, Mayuge district on Tuesday night. 

The two men allegedly stormed the mobile money shop and ordered Nambi to surrender all the money in her possession. They wore navy-blue overalls, black masks, helmets, and gloves to disguise their identities. On noticing the strange activity at Nambi's shop, her neighbors and Boda boda attempted to surround the area prompting the suspected thugs to fire twice in the air to scare them off, and got away on a waiting motorcycle.

Nambi says that assailants fled through a feeder road connecting Magamaga town council to Musita-Lumino highway but residents were hesitant to pursue them since they were armed. Mayuge Deputy Resident District Commissioner, Solomon Baleke, says that the District Security Committee has resolved to increase mobile foot patrols in the area so as to deter similar occurrences.

"Magamaga town council is one of the fastest growing areas in Mayuge district, which is characterized by high levels of criminality. Residents should be extra vigilant about the new entrants in their communities so as to create security sanity," he said.
