Thuggery Will Have Reduced By End Of the Year – Patrick Onyango

Kampala Metropolitan police Spokesperson, Patrick Onyango, has promised Ugandans that by the end of this year, thuggery will have reduced.

He says police is going to carry out operations during busy hours of the day to ensure more safety in the city. Onyango was addressing the media on the state of security and he said there are in fact no new criminal groups coming in.

“There are no new criminal groups coming up, these are just thugs that are always recycling themselves. We raided Kiseka Market, and Makerere Kivuli, where many pretend to be mechanics and arrested 100 and 80 were taken to court yesterday.”

“There are thugs that have developed a new way of stealing such as using pavers to hit their victims. Thi is especially those moving alone (lonely victims) between 12:00 am and 4:00 am. We are working on profiling these suspects so we can pick them up,” Patrick Onyango added.

Onyango however said parents are not performing their responsibilities as well. He also thinks religious leaders these days don’t preach what they are supposed to.

According to him, police is not the only party to blame for the rise in crimes. He says a multi-sectoral approach needs to deal with this issue of criminality.

He, therefore, called upon the locals to be very vigilant as well and not leave work to the police only.
