TWO people have been killed since Monday in a new wave of crime in the Naguru Go-down slums between the Kololo and Naguru hills posh city suburbs. Yesterday, a mob killed a suspect said to have participated in killing Robert Okumu, a bar owner in the area.

Okumu was hit with iron bars and stabbed on Monday as he was returning home from his bar. He died at Mulago Hospital. Chaos ensued as crowds flocked to his bar where the body lay in state. Many wailing residents launched a hunt for the assailants.

The first suspect, only identified as Okenyi, was beaten to death. One of the residents said Okumu named three accomplices, who are yet to be arrested.

Residents attributed the increased crime to the Police which has been releasing several suspects without committing them to court. “They are always set free a day after without charge and upon return, they cause more havoc,” Alex Mutebi said.
