A new wave of killers have invaded Kampala city, targeting special hire drivers, private guards, lawyers and other prominent professionals. Red pepper online exclusively reports.
According to security sources, this new group does not use guns when killing.
They only use a gun to scare their target when he refuses to follow their instructions.
This was allegedly the exact style culprits who poisoned the city lawyer George Mugyenyi of Agaba magulu & Co. Advocates used.
George was allegedly called from his home in Kansanga, a Kampala city suburb in Makindye Division by a person known to him, claiming he had some business he them wanted to discuss around Munyonyo.
When he arrived in his Toyota Prado registration number UAK 460U, the culprit convinced him to meet inside his car.
In the process, he allegedly drew a pistol and put him on gun point as he ordered him to swallow some poisonous substances.
After realizing that he had become unconscious, the culprit allegedly took off with his mobile telephone which had his MTN line.
Fortunately, the deceased allegedly used his second phone which had Airtel line and informed his wife about what had happened on him.
Besides Mugyenyi, a private security guard Wilson Mudoko of Asker Security Limited who was guarding at Helmet Uganda Limited offices was also brutally murdered by unknown gang of people in Kamwokya-Nakawa Division on Monday night.
The deceased did not have a gun by the time he was attacked.
According to Police sources only items like; laptops and three computers among other valuables were stolen by the attackers to dupe the investigators into the matter.
Kamwokya incident happened two days after another special hire driver was murdered inside his car around Kyanja, a Kampala city suburb in Nakawa Division.
Surprisingly, after breathing his last, the assailants abandoned him inside his car and they allegedly didn’t touch on his valuables including the phone.
It is alleged that, having realized that most of the security had been shifted to Busoga region in a bid cracking down possible culprits suspected to be behind the rampant killing of top Muslim Clerics, the new wave of criminal killers have now embarked on raiding different parts of the city and its outskirts with intentions of causing frustrating situations amongst the peaceful Ugandans.
Two days ago, John Kavuma Kasirye, 57, a renowned special hire driver based at Stella stage in Najjanankumbi and a resident of Namasuba-Masajja B Zone, was netted by a group of unknown people who had allegedly hired him to take them towards Entebbe side but when they reached in Kitende, he was tied with gauze, and stabbed to death before they fled with his vehicle a Toyota Premio registration number UAH 967A.
One of the deceased’s widows, Cissy Kavuma told Red pepper that, on Tuesday night at around 8:30pm, she tried to contact her husband but his phone could not get through.
“When I failed to get him, I contacted my daughter Silvia and my son Kasirye who is a teacher, but still when they tried to calling on his number, it was off,” painfully she said.
Although he has been known for returning home not later than 10pm every day, his family waited for him to come back but all was in vain.
At around 7:30am, his family together with his workmates reported the disappearance of their person and upon reaching at Police, they were advised to check in Mulago hospital Mortuary to see whether he had not been murdered.
Shockingly, when they reached in the mortuary, his body was mixed up with other bodies and tightly tied with gauze.
Later, it was discovered that, the deceased had been picked by Kajjansi Police from Kitende areas where his body had been dumped by the killers.
Known for being a humble man, Kavuma has been a man of women. Out of his known three wives, he has left more than fifteen children and one grandchild.
Some of his children include; Florence Namusisi, Alex John Kavuma, Emmanuel Wagaba, Henry Kabenge, Denis Kavuma, one Nabasirye, Richard Kasirye, Veronica Nantaba, Diana Nalunga, Rogers Sendagire, Sarah Nanvuma, Kasiriivu, Teo Nakitende, Silvia Nabasirye, among others.
Meanwhile, two of his widows; Cissy Kavuma and Josephine Namutebi said that they expected more children from other women before or after the burial which took place yesterday at Lubongo-Nkokonjeru Town Council, in Buikwe District.
