Some of them walk in the rain while talking on phones and this according to scientists can lead to one being struck by lightning.

Meanwhile, Kigozi spoke of the 24 suspected robbers who included a police officer a one Barnet Musiime attached to special investigations unit in Kireka, who were netted in Nakaseke on the same day after a robbery was carried out in Ngooma during the rain; where several heads of cattle, motorcycles and cash were taken.
