Luke Owoyesigyire, the Kampala Metropolitan Police (KMP) spokesperson, reported the discovery of five suspected stolen motorcycles and eight motorcycle number plates at Muganda Ali Garage in Natete.

The operation was prompted by the swift response of Bulenga Police Station, leading to the arrest of Amanya Joel and the recovery of Mr. Felix’s stolen motorcycle.

In the early hours of Tuesday, Mr. Muganzi Felix, a 23-year-old boda boda operator, faced a terrifying ordeal while on duty. Two individuals, identified as Amanya Joel and another only known as Ibrah, hired Mr. Felix to transport them to the Nakuwade area. However, upon reaching a dimly lit area, they viciously attacked Mr. Felix with a panga, attempting to rob him of his motorcycle, registration number UEN 484A.

“During the altercation, Mr. Felix bravely resisted, managing to overpower one of the assailants, Amanya Joel, with the assistance of local residents. Regrettably, the other perpetrator fled the scene with Mr. Felix’s motorcycle,” Owoyesigyire explained.

As part of the ongoing efforts to ensure justice prevails, Police arrested 12 suspects, including Buye Peter (18), Kizza Enock (17), Kayondo Isma (17), Ssenyondo Edward (18), Sekiwala Joseph (19), Ssempijja Mahadhi (20), Luwaga Swabul (15), Lujja Christopher (19), Sseruga Muzamir, Mukuye Dan, and Birungi Abdul Mutwalib (17).

Police further urged anyone with information regarding this case or similar incidents to come forward and assist law enforcement in our efforts to maintain peace and security in our community.

Later, the force also extended their gratitude to the community for their cooperation and assistance in apprehending the suspects and recovering the stolen property.
