14 Boda Boda riders arrested over murder of former UN Driver

Police have arrested 14 suspects following a murder by mob of Aziz Bashir a 40-year-old former UN driver.

The violent road rage incident that was caught on video and CCTV, involved a group of bodaboda riders who caused disorders on the road, chased and brutally murdered Bashir. The incident happened on 17.10.2021, along with the Mengo-Nateete road section at 7 am.

The 14 suspects who are in custody on various charges of the alleged murder, malicious damage, and theft of car parts include; No. 51582 D/C Kanywasi Dan, Mutebi Martin, Talemwa Asafu, Waswa Samuel, Muto Richard, Wajabu Jackson, Kasolo Asuman, Nsubuga Ivan, Ssebugwawo Jimmy, Balilonda Emmanuel, Lugango Julius, Miyingo Joseph, Wejjuli Hilary, and Ssentongo Henry.

CP Fred Enanga the police spokesperson says expansive efforts are in place to track down more suspects including the initial bodaboda rider who brushed the victim’s car, those who gave him a chase, and those who subdued and stoned him to death. 

“We hope the arrests made so far, will serve as a strong lesson to all motorists especially bodaboda riders, that there are legal consequences to acts of road rage, especially when that rage turns violent. We continue to caution all motorists that road rage is real and dangerous to other road users” Enanga added. 

He added that this shows the lack of patience and civility on our roads, where every motorist assumes to be above the traffic laws. We also want to urge all motorists to figure out how to de-escalate, tense situations on the roads, before it gets out of control. 

According to the police mouthpiece, the Joint Security Agencies, will not tolerate such kinds of careless and reckless behavior on the roads, and these arrests are a reminder that police will be relentless in preventing and solving violent crime in the country.
