The car driver was recently involved in a shooting with police at Kiryandongo on Masaka –Mpondwe road.

Lwakataka fell into a check-point erected to impound vehicles loaded with suspected immature fish and other items that could be illegal in nature.

At about 2300hrs, a lorry track Reg. Number UAF 148C attempted to speed off without being checked and behind it was a car registration number UAU 925D belonging to Lwakataka.

The officers at the check point (fisheries officers, police and UPDF) in their car then made a chase to impound the lorry track but Lwakataka who was occupying the Toyota premio blocked them, causing his car to be scratched at the door.

At this point, Lwakataka withdrew his pistol gun and shot at the officers, who then shot at the tyres of his car and deflated them. Following this, the checkpoint officers were able to intercept the lorry full of suspected dried immature fish and towed it to Mpondwe police station. Lwakataka’s Toyota premio was also impounded.

A second vehicle, also a lorry track box body was impounded carrying what is suspected to be immature fish. The vehicle Reg. number UAJ 035Z is also said to belong to Lwakataka.
