Police hunt for gang of thugs who broke into Nswanjere Junior Seminary

The Police at Wakiso are investigating an incident of an aggravated robbery that took place at Nswanjere Junior seminary school in Muduma sub-county, Mpigi District on 20/03/2023 at around 03:00 am.

It is alleged that unknown assailants gained entrance into the school by cutting barbed wires and proceeded to rob the school of various items including a TV, mobile phones, cash, a laptop, and the church Tabernacle.

During the robbery, Fr. Kyeyune Godfrey, the Vice-Rector at Nswanjere Junior seminary, was beaten and injured on the left hand. Fr. Emmanuel Mukukule was also beaten and injured on the head and is currently admitted at Lubaga hospital.

Meanwhile, Rev. Fr. John Bosco Kigundu and Bro. John Bosco Mwasa were also robbed of cash and mobile phones.

The vandalized Terbanacle

A team of Police officers from Wakiso visited the scene to collect evidence. They recorded statements from relevant witnesses and an exhibit of a grey bag containing coins amounting to four thousand shillings was recovered a few meters from the scene.

According to Luke Owoyesigyire the Deputy PRO KMP, the suspects are still at large, and the police are currently conducting inquiries to apprehend them.

“The Police assure the public that it will do everything within its power to bring the perpetrators to justice and ensure the safety and security of the residents in the area. We urge members of the public to be vigilant and report any suspicious activities to the police promptly. Anyone with information that could lead to the arrest of the suspects is encouraged to come forward and share it with the police,” says Owoyesigyire.

The Archbishop for Kampala His Grace Paul Ssemogerere has since announced a Triduum in the entire Archdiocese starting today, with an intention to seek forgiveness on behalf of the perpetrators.

“The Chapel of Nswanjere Junior Seminary was vandalized, the Tabernacle was opened, and Consecrated Hosts, of the permanent real presence of the Lord, were scattered everywhere in the Chapel. This was a terrible violation of the Blessed Sacrament of Our Lord Jesus Christ,” reads part of the statement from Fr Pius Male the Chancellor of Kampala Archdiocese.

Led by their Pastors, Christians will observe a three-day Prayer (Triduum) in reparation to the Lord Jesus Christ as they ask for forgiveness for what has been termed as a terrible atrocity done by fellow human beings and pray for the conversion of the perpetrators.

“The prayer of reparation will be done by having an adoration of the Blessed Sacrament for an appropriate time within the main Churches of all Parishes always ending with Benediction. This Triduum will be from tomorrow the 21st of March to the 23rd of March 2023.”
