Woman Member Of Parliament Kayunga District Aidah Nantaba has accused the law enforcing body for allegedly being behind the murders of all prominent persons in the country.
Nantaba, who was speaking to the press on Wednesday during her courtesy visit to the Genera Katumba Wamala at Medipal hospital in Kololo, said that the continuous failure for police to present conclusive evidence that pins suspects against the murder of fellow Ugandans has laid fertile ground for the untimely murders in the country.
“I was attacked by two men on a motorcycle in 2019 in Kayunga when l had made a stopover to buy some groceries. Fortunately, though one of the suspects managed to escape, the other was arrested but murdered by police in cold blood, a thing that puzzled me,” she said.
“Why murder a suspect?” Nantaba asked, saying that this incident jeopardized all her efforts to acquire the justice she needed at the time, thus leaving many stones unturned.
This week alone Uganda has lost over five people, all killed by assailants.
Aidah Nantaba therefore urged the police to work on her case, investigate and find the other suspect so that he is held accountable.
Buganda premier, Charles Peter Mayiga, also present at Medipal hospital, called on government to hunt down all the perpetuators of such criminalities and hold them accountable.
Mugisha Muntu, a retired general, also noted that the situation in the country was now worrying and that 10years of blood shed are painting Uganda as a cinema hall, with dead bodies to watch.
Dr. Ruhakana Rugunda, former Prime Minister, seemed optimistic and emphasized that though there has been a delay in the presenting of reports that did not mean that the government is not vigilant. He asked the general public to work hand in hand with authorities in the country.
Since 2012 many Ugandans have lost their lives in unprecedented events that allegedly are engineered by Boda Boda cyclists.
This prompted the president to come up with measures on how to track down these “Pigs”. Efforts put in place to end such murders are still unsuccessful.
