‘‘Summoned MPs Ssegirinya & Ssewanyana Were Behind Murders’ Meetings’’, Says Enanga

Published on


Police Mouthpiece Fred Enanga has said that the suspects arrested recently over the gruesome killings in great Masaka implicated MPs Muhammad Ssegirinya and Allan Ssewanyana being behind the terrorism acts.

Enanga made this statement during the weekly police press briefing today.
“The statements from suspects indicate that in a meeting at Ndeeba, they were recruited and all was done under the command of the two politicians. We want explanation from them.” Enanga said.

The two opposition National Unity Platform (NUP) MPs representing Makindye West and Lubaga North constituencies respectively were summoned to record statements at the Masaka Central Police Station concerning mysterious machete attacks that have claimed close to 30 lives.

“The two politicians held meetings to plan the murders in order to create animosity among the public,”Enanga added.

The police spokesperson however noted that 23 suspects have been arrested, 11 of whom have already appeared in courts of law, whereas the others are pending court.

Enanga added that security is also monitoring reports of leaflets thrown in various parts of the country including Mityana and Wakiso among others.

According to Enanga, the situation in Masaka has calmed down since the heavy deployment in the area but he urged locals to always be vigilant so that they can alert security or defend themselves in case of any attack by panga wielding assailants.

It should be noted that this is second time murders are targeted by assailants using machetes to kill them since 2018.

Over the weekend, National Unity Platform (NUP) leader, Robert Kyagulanyi said security is planning to link him and the party to the killings in Masaka but warned the plan would fail.

“Anyone can predict where this is going, and what their grand objective is. What I can say without contradiction is that this new attempt will fail, like all those before. Our people just need to be vigilant and remain alert,” Kyagulanyi said in a tweet.
