Unknown thugs have raided a Non-Governmental Organisation- NGO in Bukasa-Muyenga, Makindye Division, and killed a security guard.
The NGO, Good Neighbours is renowned for advocating for children’s rights and providing reasonable aide to disadvantaged children.
Kampala Metropolitan Police Spokesperson, Patrick Onyango, says that the guard identified Rodgers Nasasira and attached to Security 2000 Company was strangled to death by unknown assailants on Wednesday.
One of the locals who preferred anonymity said they heard mild screams and breakings in the wee hours of Wednesday morning. She added that they later heard sounds of motorcycles perhaps used by the criminals.
Kabalagala police that arrived first at the scene was informed by NGO managers that thugs varnished with eight laptops and other unspecified items. Residents said the NGO could sometimes be under power blackout and the guards are often deployed while armed with batons.
Onyango said police would rely on Closed Circuit Television- CCTV cameras at the premises and neighbouring buildings to track Nasasira’s killers.
In the last quarter of last year, Kampala Metropolitan registered rampant cases of home, factory and office raids by thugs armed with guns and machetes.
This forced President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni to order deputy Inspector General of Police –Maj Gen Muzeyi Sabiiti, to come up with a security strategy.
In response, Gen Sabiiti accompanied by commander UPDF Land forces, Lt Gen Peter Elwelu, released a five-point program.
Sabiiti, Elwelu and other security chiefs said if the plan implemented, it would reduce cases of kidnap, murder, home raids, muggings minimized. This was to be achieved through increased presence of police, LDUs and full-time operation of CCTV cameras.
