A gang armed with machetes tried to break into the home of former legislator Mubarak Munyagwa before police foiled overnight aggravated robbery, arresting a man on scene.

Kampala Metropolitan deputy police spokesperson Luke Owoyesigyire noted that last night at approximately 3am, the Nsangi Territorial Police received information regarding an attempted aggravated robbery at the residence of Munyagwa in Kimbejja Cell, Budo Ward, Kyengera Town Council.

Owoyesigyire added that a swift response led by the Division Police Commander prevented the assailants from gaining access to Munyagwa’s home.

According to police, Munyagwa’s security guard Benjamin Mpaka sustained a head injury from a sharp object as he tried to block the suspected criminals- and was promptly transported to Mulago Hospital for treatment.

Owoyesigyire emphasized that the timely reporting by Munyagwa and the rapid response of the police team on patrol played a crucial role in ensuring the safety of life and property.

Police maintain that there was no on-scene shooting, contrary to social media falsehoods.

In the aftermath of the attack, police introduced K9 units to the scene, and led to the arrest of one suspect who was attempting to flee the scene in a Datsun pick-up registration number UAK 182A and is now in police custody, aiding ongoing police investigations.
