Water crisis hits Kabale

stronKAMPALAstron

Veterans and returnees from Iraq have asked government to rearm them in order to combat the rapidly rising crime rate in the country, especially Kampala.

The group, which also includes former local defence unit officials, said their effort will complement police and UPDF in tackling iron bar hitmen and armed robbers.

“Let government rearm reserve forces officers because insecurity has increased in the city. We want to help fight iron bar hitmen and armed robbers that have destabilised the city and the country,” said Mr Ahmed Lukoda Batte, the group leader and a former local defence unit officer.

The group made the offer during a meeting with the Kampala Resident City Commissioner, Ms Aisha Kabanda, at KCCA grounds on Monday.
