The arrested have been identified as; Richard Kwizera, Friday Norman, Fred Benaza, William Arinaitwe, Simon Mulungi and Edison Kasujja, all residents of Mulago, Makerere and surrounding areas.

In a bid to crack down criminals this festive season, the Police Commander Kampala Metropolitan, Andrew Felix Kaweesi on Wednesday carried out several meetings with local leaders in Nansana and assigned former DPC, Nakulabye Mohammed Kirumira, to head police operations in Nansana because the area has been spotted to be harbouring criminals who especially terrorise people along the northern by pass.

Perpetual robberies plus rape in areas neighbouring Mulago were reported by residents to police and the arrested six have been ring leaders of a large group which has been carrying out gang rapes on University students.

They are being detained at Wandegeya police station and according to Ceasar Tusingwire, the DPC Wandegeya; they are likely to face charges of robbery, rape, assault among other cases, pending investigation.
