Panga-Wielding Thugs Ambush Masaka Leaving 15 dead

At least 15 people have been hacked to death in the districts of Lwengo, Bukomansimbi, and Masaka by machete-wielding thugs.

They started their new episode of attacks, three years after they had been sent away from the area.

The events have insinuated fear and agony amongst locals in the different areas of greater Masaka where the thugs attack.

They baptized the group ‘’Bijambiya’’ because of their method of killing by the use of machetes. Their killing spree started way back in 2016 and in that episode, over 30 people lost their lives. And now, the group has resumed its activities.

The thugs have never revealed their intention of killing their victims. However, they would break into the homes of their victims, hack to death the occupants and dismiss themselves.

The thugs would then dismiss themselves minus taking possession of any items attached to that home, be it money

In 2018, president Museveni and former IGP Gen. Kale Kayihura camped in this area to command a joint operation by police.

Also, other sister security agencies joined the fight which led to the arrest of Muhamad Kiddawalime and Musa Galiwango. These two were apparently the ringleaders of the machete-wielding gang.

Three years later, another gang of the machete-wielding men has been born.

In just two weeks, the anonymous attackers have swept through several villages and killed over 15 people. Some of the victims are retired army officers.
