There was drama at Cafe Javas formerly Nandos, along Jinja Road on Thursday evening when an unidentified man stormed the facility wanting to burn it.
According to witnesses, the man came on a motorcycle with a jerrycan of petrol and reached for a lighter.
“After pouring petrol at the entire food court, he reached for a lighter to set the place ablaze,” said Betty Namukasa .
The attacker was intercepted by some of the customers who had turned up to get some bites before beating him to near death.
The unidentified man was however saved by police that whisked him away to Mulago hospital where he is nursing injuries.
On checking him thoroughly, the man didn’t have any identification documents.
“We will open charges against him after recovering from injuries he sustained during the attack,” said the Deputy Spokesperson Kampala Metropolitan Police, Luke Owoyesogire.
