Ronnie Ndyareeba, order http://couponsavingfamily.com/wp-admin/includes/taxonomy.php the manager Kololo Gardens, link http://coupon-ads.com/wp-includes/registration.php is fighting for his life at Nakasero Hospital after being attacked by thugs at the gate of his residence in the crime-stricken Najjera suburb.

The amiable Ndyareeba was thumped with metallic objects, inflicting severe injuries on his head.

He was rushed to Nakasero Hospital by ambulance.

The incident occurred at around 10:00pm.

Crime cases in Najjera, Wakiso District are on a sharp rise, with over 30 cases of burglary, theft and deadly attacks on civilians being reported to police on a daily basis.

A small police post manned by not more than 15 officers manages entire security of the vast fast-developing suburb.

The growing middle class is gradually settling in Najjera, Naalya, Kungu and Kiira suburbs where posh bungalows have been erected.

This has attracted the attention of thugs who waylay their targets at the gates of their residences.

In some extreme cases, thugs enter houses through the roof.

Police officers at Najjera Post told ChimpReports that they have been overwhelmed by thugs in the area.

“Since late last year, we have recorded almost one thousand cases of break-ins and attacks on civilians by thugs,” said a cop who spoke on condition of anonymity.

Interestingly, the cop admits, rarely does security apprehend the suspects in the widely spread crime cases.

There are discomforting reports that some of renowned criminals in the area connive with senior police officers for protection, making it difficult to apprehend them.

Gen Kale Kayihura visited the area where he introduced community policing to fight crime.

However, this has not helped the situation as criminals continue to terrorise innocent civilians.
NTV Uganda crew resumes its coverage of President Museveni’s campaign trail on Thursday following a row with State House over drone footage.

The team will be led by Maurice Ochol – a Makerere University trained journalist.

The broadcaster was last week kicked out of Museveni’s campaign trail for refusing to air drone footage of the ruling party’s rallies.

State House argued then that the footage was always authentic and clearly showed the president’s political strength ahead of the 2016 elections.

However, what is ed http://chatterblast.com/wp-includes/media.php led by content manager Daniel Kalinaki, http://concernedafricascholars.org/wp-includes/ms-default-filters.php NTV reasoned that broadcasting drone pictures gave undue advantage to the incumbent against rival candidates.

But Museveni’s team said Kalinaki had scores to settle with the president and that they could not accept being mistreated by NTV simply because of NRM’s superior technology.

The matter generated a heated debate on social media platforms with some arguing that the state was arm-twisting NTV for better coverage.

Others said the opposition should as well buy drones to compete with NRM.

Inside Story

Highly placed sources told ChimpReports on Friday that following behind-the-scenes talks with State House officials, the broadcaster agreed to air NRM drone footages.

However, NTV insisted that the footages would be labelled ‘PPU’ to show the source.

Efforts by some NTV managers to remove Ochol from the field did not bear fruit.

State House said its security was too busy to vet other journalists as the campaigns came to a close.

NTV boss Aggie Konde had provided names of journalists including Emma Mutaizibwa to replace Ochol.

Ochol and his team start work today in Kiboga where Museveni is beginning another round of campaigns in the central region.

NRM campaign media team on Thursday received a communication to “Expect to be rejoined by the NTV crew effective tomorrow, led by Ochol.”

It added: “The NTV managers have, in principle, agreed to be accurate, fair, and balanced in their coverage of the NRM Presidential candidate.”

Officials further said NTV pledged “… not, again, seek to undermine or disrupt the candidate’s campaign publicity program.”
