“Upon accessing the main house, these thieves also beat up the occupants and flee with Ugx200million and $5000. Our intelligence has indicated that the place is becoming notorious with panga wielding men and to that effect, the territorial commanders have deployed heavily, both motorized and foot patrol to counter these unfortunate incidents” Twiine said.
