“People around Kisenyi and Owino have been complaining to the police that they are being robbed but today the thugs are in police hands,” Ameru stated.

It has been a trend for criminals who also pass as idlers start looking for money from people’s pockets as the festive season closes in.

The suspected thugs arm themselves with knives and pangas which they use to threaten people at night and rob them of their property.

Those arrested included suspected cocaine smokers, pickets, armed robbers, gang and house rapists.

Some were identified as Arinda Ediga, Moses Nsubuga, Norman Tuyahe, Muhamud Isabirye and Musa Asiimwe, among others.

Ameru said the suspects will be taken to court for prosecution.

On the other hand, the director for security in Kisenyi, Godfrey Kasiita, has called upon the public to cooperate with police and report such cases in order to get rid the area of criminals.
