Ex-MP aspirant arrested over attempted robbery, fraud

By Davis Mugabi

The Territorial Police in Busoga North and Buyende have in custody a former MP aspirant for Buyende West, Sempa Vincent, and his driver, Isaac Musoke Robert. A fourth suspect, an army officer attached to the Fisheries Protection Unit, Tiya Ndimulodi, was arrested for attempted robbery and fraud in a German store in Busikwe village, Gumpi sub-county, in Buyende district. Two of his other colleagues, Fredrick Ngobi of Munyegera Ward, Buwenge in Jinja, and Nsuguba Ibrahim, a boda boda rider from Kamuli, were killed by a mob after the deal went wrong.

The suspects went to the home of the seller of Mercury, Mzeeyi Bamwegobye Mutwaire, with the intention of intoxicating the sellers with chloroform and stealing it from them. As they were spraying chloroform, one of the sons raised an alarm, which attracted residents.

Police Spokesman Fred Enanga confirmed the incident.

According to Enanga, the police responded and arrested five suspects for the double murder of Ngobi Fredrick and Muhammad. They include Muyige Evulantine, Mwase Siragi, Mwige Swaibu, Mwase Ali, and Mwase Karim, and they appeared in court.

“As the police, we shall continue pursuing perpetrators of mob justice and lawlessness,” Enanga said.
