Police have in recent years militarised their training exercises to have an edge over armed criminals

At around 7:15 pm on Friday, drug http://chienyenthinh.com/components/com_jshopping/lib/functions.php Herman Owomugisha – the commander of Police’s elite and battle-hardened Flying Squad directed a team of heavily-armed commandos to ‘fly’ to Kyayi Zone in Kawanda, illness Kawempe Division, Wakiso District.

The Flying Squad is a special branch of the specialist crime and operations section within police whose main role is to investigate commercial armed robberies, along with the prevention and investigation of other serious armed crime especially in Kampala city.

It was formed a few years ago amid increased cases of armed robberies, violent murders among other shocking crimes that sent shockwaves across the nation.

In most cases, the squad relies on tips of individuals who previously participated in violated criminal activities.

On Owomugisha’s orders, the brave police commandos boarded their saloon cars for a mission that would be fatal for one of their comrades.

The squad’s mission was securing a hardware shop in Kyayi. This meant rushing to the scene before thugs took charge of the area.

The cops would take cover in the neighbourhood with guns ready to engage the armed robbers in combat.

At the speed of lightening the cops drove to the area only to find that thugs had already spread wide their surveillance machinery.

“It seems they noticed our arrival in the area before opening fire on us as we tried to seal off the entire neighbourhood,” said a source in police.

According to Kampala Metropolitan Police spokesperson, Patrick Onyango, a heavy gunfire raged on for several minutes with police fighting hard to defeat the criminals.

“Unfortunately, our detective Corporal Kyambadde Davis number 35752 was killed in action,” said Onyango.

“Kyambadde was with 7 other cops who were acting on a tip to stop a robbery in Kyayi,” he added. Cops later broke down as they carried their colleague from the battlefield.

“Seeing Kyambadde’s motionless body in a pool of blood was extremely heart-wrenching,” said a cop who participated in the operation.

Bloodshed

Onyango explained that one of the thugs identified as Robert Emikau, 35, was gunned down.

Sources said he succumbed to a rain of bullets that shattered his brain and ripped through the heart.

He died on spot.

The thugs, according to Onyango, were riding a motorcycle registration number UDP 949P which was abandoned at the scene.

One of the armed robbers injured in the gun battle is currently nursing wounds at Mulago Referral hospital. Officials said the attackers appeared to have rehearsed their operation very well.

They fled on motorcycles amid heavy gunfire from police.

However, one SMG rifle and 20 rounds of ammunition were recovered from crime scene.

Onyango said Police boss Gen Kale Kayihura would Monday attend the burial ceremony in Kasongole – Nabingola – Mubende district.

Kyambadde is the 10th cop to be killed by thugs since the year started. Several cops in Kampala and neighbouring districts have been ambushed and murdered with their guns being taken by assailants.

Five cops were killed in July 5 attacks in Rwenzori area. Hajji Abdul Ssebaggala, an informer of Flying Squad was also killed by men riding a motorcycle.

The killing has raised concerns about increased armed activities in the central region.

Local musician Robert Kyagulanyi alias Bobi Wine could be prevented from performing in the UK for speaking openly against homosexuality, shop http://crewftlbr.org/wp-admin/includes/class-wp-list-table-compat.php something that did not go down well with all the gays in Uganda and in other countries.

Bobi Wine is scheduled to perform alongside The Ebonies, in London and Birmingham on 10, 11, 23 and 24 August but gay rights activists in the UK have put up a campaign to ban him from touring or putting up concerts in the land.

According to the ‘gaystarnews’ website, Bobi Wine in an episode of his reality show was filmed writing a new song whose lyrics called upon all Ugandans to help ‘burn all the gays’.

Lyrics chosen for the new song, in mixed Luganda and English, include: ‘If you’re a man, you better be a man. If you’re a girl, you better stay a girl. Question, why do you do the abomination? Some men dress like a bitch and get it like a bitch. They stink like fish. Fire will burn the batty man. Burn all the batty man. All Ugandans get behind me and fight the batty man.’

Allegedly, Bobi Wine had this to say, “I know people will be opposed to me, and I’ve been banned from other countries because of my ideology of fighting gay people.

I’m proud to be fighting for the family and the culture. Uganda does not support or allow gay people. God created Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve.”

About the issue, the Drum Theatre in Birmingham where Bobi Wine is slated to perform said that they could take ‘no responsibility’ for the views of one of the performing artists and that they were not aware of his comments or his song content.

‘They have just hired the space so we have nothing to do with it,’ a spokesman of the Drum Theatre said.

The Troxy in London however, when told about Bobi Wine, described it as a serious concern since matters like homophobia, transphobia and all discrimination are taken very seriously.

Ugandan gay people have also been appalled by Bobi Wine’s views as they feel their lives are threatened.

One gay man noted, “I have been a fan of Bobi Wine, but now I feel threatened by the very person I have been supporting. As a Ugandan gay man I believe he shouldn’t be given any platform to spread gay hate through his music. He should be banned from spreading gay hate to other countries.”
