Two people are in police custody in connection to fire outbreaks at the home of Rose Namayanja Nsereko, the National Resistance Movement-NRM party Treasurer in Wakiso district.

The suspects are wanted in connection to three fire breakouts at Namayanja’s home in Masooli Village in Kasangati town council in Wakiso district, which occurred in a space of two days.   

The Deputy Kampala Metropolitan Police Spokesperson, Luke Oweisigire confirmed the arrest of the suspects but declined to reveal their identities for fear of jeopardizing police investigations.

 

“The actual cause of the fire is still unknown but investigating officers have already embarked on the investigations. We also believe that the arrested might have some information in regard to the incidents,” Oweisigire told Uganda Radio Network.   

 

According to Oweisigire, the first fire incident happened on Thursday evening when the annex housing a saloon and gym burnt to ashes. He says the second incident was recorded on Friday morning when fire started in the main house in the sitting room but was put off.   

He however, says in the course of putting off this fire in the sitting room, another fire erupted from the quarters where the house maid sleeps. Namayanja notes that the fire in the living room was spotted by her employees who helped to put it out despite the fact that it’s destroyed several properties.

The ‘mysterious fire breakouts’ have forced the former Nakaseke District Woman member of parliament to relocate from her Kasangati based home. She says her survival instincts and advice from her friends compelled her to vacate the house.
