A luggage handler attached to Link Bus Services
in Kasese district has been arrested for illegal possession of military uniform.
Muzafari Katabazi was picked on Wednesday on a tip-off from a security officer at the bus terminal.
Lt. Col. Richard Omony, the Commandant of the 4th
Mountain battalion based in Rukoki in Kasese district, says the suspect was
found with a military cap.
//Cue in; "We come across...
Cue Out…acquired that cap.”//
He says that upon interrogation, the suspect claimed that he picked the military cap from one of the buses,
which had just arrived from Kampala. Katabazi told URN that he only
wore the cap to “show off”.
//Cue in; “Ekintu kibire mu store…
Cue out…nyowe timbaire nayo.”//
However, one of the company employees who only identified himself
as Rugumayo told URN that it is against their
operating standards to use any item left behind by a customer.
//Cue in; obutuba tubitungire tu…
Cue out... nibabisera tubibaha.”//
Lt. Col. Richard says that the suspect will be
interrogated since there is no officer who has reported a missing military
If found on the wrong side of the law, the suspect will be charged with unlawful possession of government stores contrary
to section 316 of the penal code.
