KILLER GUN CEASED IN KASESE
Security operatives in Kasese district have recovered a gun from a suspected criminal in Busalya village, Muhindi parish in Nyakiyumbu sub-county.
The chairman Kasese district Lt.Col. Mawa Muhindo said this evening that with the help of the local leaders security officials recovered an SMG number 1977Z6088 from Yokinia Muthighandi.
Muthighandi is said to be on the run but officials managed to unearth the gun with twenty three rounds of ammunitions that he had been keeping underground.
It is believed the gun has been used for poaching in the Queen Elizabeth National Park and also terrorizing communities with robbery.
Mawa said that the operation is going on to recover more guns that should have been used in the rampant killings in the district in the rest days.
He called upon whoever possesses an illegal fire arm to hand it over to the police or else the law will take its course on them.
