Police’s Flying Squad Unit (FSU) has arrested a driver suspected to chauffeur armed robbers to different missions. 

The driver is said to have chauffeured suspects; Stanley Muluta alias Frank Jjumba, Emma Onen Ochan and Denis Muguso, to Masaka district, where they robbed a Toyota Harrier registration number UBA 874W from a businessman on May 4. 

Police said the same driver was spotted in a vehicle that transported robbers to Nateete Church zone on May 14 where they robbed a mobile money operator and fired random bullets that killed Nkozi University student, Rafael Walugembe.  

Three days later, he drove a Toyota Wish registration number UBE 481A up to Kitende Cell zone along Entebbe Road where they stole 16 million Shillings from one Sanyu Nalukwago before speeding off. Enanga said the driver was also behind steering when armed robbers exchanged bullets with police in Mbale district where Sgt Chemonges was gunned down.  

Police Spokesperson Fred Enanga said the driver, whose identities he declined to divulge, went into hiding after his clients Stanley Muluta alias Frank Jjumba, Emma Onen Ochan and Denis Muguso were arrested. But he was tracked down until he was netted in Eastern Uganda and is now going to be transferred to the Special Investigation Division (SID).  

The initial group of robbers was arrested in an operation led by the Flying Squad Unit, and the Chieftaincy of Military Intelligence (CMI). The Flying Squad Unit first arrested Muluta in Masanafu, Rubaga Division in Kampala, before he revealed his accomplices, who were subsequently arrested with guns.
