Six people are in police custody in connection to the theft of guard rails on Mukono-Katosi road that is still under construction in Buikwe district.

The Buikwe District Police Commander, Alex Wabwire identifies the suspects as Steven Ssekibuule, Deo Nyombi, Zebidayo Kihaya and George Balika, all residents of Nkokonjeru in Mukono district.

The other suspects are Assistant Superintendent of Police, Ritta Busingye, the officer in charge of Ngogwe Police station and Sergeant, Robert Chedikol. The suspects are wanted in connection to the theft of 42 pieces of guard rails measuring over 150 meters from Bugga village in Ngogwe Sub County in Buikwe district.

According to information obtained by URN, residents alerted Police about the theft of the guard rails a few days ago but nothing was done to stop the vandals. Residents claim that one of them saw the vandals in action and informed Ritta Busingye, the Officer in Charge of Ngogwe Police station but instead of taking action, she alerted them to leave.

Ronald Lukwago, a resident of Bugga village, says it is unfortunate that after getting a good road in their area some people have started vandalizing it instead of using it to improve their livelihood.
