The Katikkiro of Buganda, Charles Peter Mayiga, has urged security organs to quickly find a solution to the increasing murders in Greater Masaka if they are to put an end to the surging terror in the area.
Mr Mayiga, who was speaking to journalists in Buddu, Masaka, where he had gone for a courtesy visit, said unlike the political matters that would have been already put to rest, suspects in these murders also needed to be arrested and charged for their crimes.
“I see security organs quick to react, especially if there has been any conversion by its opponents, they always come out in numbers and on time citing its unlawfulness,” he said.
The Katikkiro added that if this issue is not handled urgently, it gives room for more massacres and misinformation.
“There is a lot of misinformation out there, the masses have also started drawing their own conclusions,” he added.
Mr Mayiga wondered how the security organs have constantly failed to identify the murders.
More than 30 people have been killed in greater Masaka by machete wielding men. Some of the suspects have been arrested.
Security organs have urged communities to remain calm.
