Unknown Gunmen Shoot Kisoro Woman

Hajji Shafique Ssekandi, the Kisoro Resident District Commissioner, says that cases of robbery and gun murders are common in the District. According to Ssekandi, they have registered six cases of robbery and murder using a gun in the District since August this year.
Kisoro Police have launched a manhunt for the shooters of 42- year- old woman Efrance Uzamukunda, a resident of Murora village in Muramba Sub County. 

Unknown assailants shot Uzamukunda at 6:30am on Sunday morning at Kibugu trading near Kibugu Church of Uganda, about seven miles to the Uganda-Democratic Republic of Congo border.

According to Uzamukunda, she was rushing her sick eight- year -old child to Kisoro hospital on foot when she met three gunmen. Uzamukunda says one of the gunmen shot her in the right foot and took without uttering a single word. 

She says the gunmen fled from the scene and didn't take anything from her. She is currently admitted at Mutorere Hospital. Edgar Akankwasa, the Kisoro District Police Commander, says they have started gathering information that can lead to the arrest of the gunmen. 

Hajji Shafique Ssekandi, the Kisoro Resident District Commissioner, says that cases of robbery and gun murders are common in the District. According to Ssekandi, they have registered six cases of robbery and murder using a gun in the District since August this year. 

He suspects that insecurity in the neighboring Democratic Republic of Congo could be the source of the guns being used in Kisoro district to commit crime. On October 16th this year, police recovered an AK47 rifle at an Airstrip in Kabuga cell in Kyahi Sub wrapped in a polythene bag. 

The rifle belonged to the late Moses Kilongosi who was attached to the Field Force Unit. Kilongosi was killed by unknown gunmen while on night duty at the home of David Mugamba, the Kisoro Resident State Attorney near Kisoro View Guest House along Mutanda Road. 

On October 26th this year, another gun was recovered along Kisoro-Chanika road.
