Uganda Police has released a report on the fire that gutted the Bulange-Mengo armory on October 10th this year.
Ms. Judith Nabakooba, the police spokesperson, while addressing journalists after the release of the report said that the fire was caused by petrol which was spilled in the armory where it broke out killing four people.
Nabakooba said that the fire caused a lot of damage because police was called in late at the scene to contain the fire.
The fire at Bulange broke out after an unidentified woman poured petrol which she found in the security office. She had been detained in the security office after trying to forcefully enter Bulange.
The victims included the Kabaka’s chief guard, Capt. Steven Kisitu Mivule, and Ngabi Betty Nakanwagi among others.
The release of the report comes amidst demands from Buganda Kingdom to release other reports on Buganda properties such as Kasubi tombs, Naggalabi sites and other royal properties that have been burnt mysteriously.
