President Museveni has met Betty Nakyambadde, a robbery victim of Mukoko village in Bukulula Sub-County, Kalungu District in Greater Masaka who was attacked at her home by notorious Bukomansimbi thugs on April 10.
Nakyambadde, who on Friday met the President today at his country home in Rwakitura, Kiruhuura District, was in the company of a team of security people that were led by Masaka Brigade Commander, Joseph Semwanga.
The President thanked Nakyambadde for being brave and alerting the neighbors who later collaborated with security to rescue her.
“I want to thank my granddaughter for being brave. These are the soldiers we are remaining with,” he said.
The thugs who attacked Nakyambadde were the two criminals who had been arrested but escaped early this year in Bukomansimbi District where they murdered five people on New Year’s Eve.
Another notorious thug, Musa Galiwango, is currently on the run while his accomplice, Kidawalime Muhammad, was killed by angry residents.
President Museveni directed that Nakyambade, who is an enrolled nurse, should be given a job.
He also commended the area Police Officer in Charge, ASP Steven Twinomugisha for quickly responding to Nakyambadde’s call in time and vigilance.
He directed that he, too, be rewarded.
Regional Police Commander for Greater Masaka, SP Latif Zaake, asked the public to join the Uganda Police Force in fighting crime through neighborhood watch strategy and ‘Mayumba Kumi’ system.
