Residents roughed up the suspect identified as John Mwesigwa when he together with another suspect still at large broke into the residence of father Robert Kalumba on Tuesday night.

Police in Katabi town council in Entebbe Municipality are holding a man for breaking into the residence of Catholic Parish priests in Mpala. 

Residents roughed up the suspect identified as John Mwesigwa when he together with another suspect still at large broke into the residence of father Robert Kalumba on Tuesday night.       

One of the priest’s domestic workers spotted the intruders along a well-lit corridor after midnight. The worker notified his other colleague and they shouted for help. 

The alarm attracted the attention of the priest forcing him to storm out of his room only to find the workers chasing after the intruders.

One of the suspects managed to get away using the backdoor, while Mwesigwa was captured with the help of residents from the neighbourhood. 

According to Fr. Kalumba, the residents descended on Mwesigwa and beat him up because of anger since this was the fourth attempted robbery at his residence since 2017.    

He explains that residents tied Mwesigwa’s hands and feet because police officers from Mpala and Abaita Ababiri police stations did not respond in time to their call.

A team of police officers from Mpala police station later picked up the visibly weak Mwesigwa and bundled him on police patrol vehicle. 

Police were yet to press any charges against the suspect by the time of filing this story.
