MUKONO – There has been fear among the residents of Katosi as seven men in Katosi Taxi Park in Mukono District were being arrested.
The men were arrested on Friday, 11, by three security operatives believed to be from the Internal Security Organisation.
The operatives were led by one Hajj Musa who residents recognised.
Among those arrested included: Dan Lubanga, Edward Nsanzi, Edward Lyazzi, Solomon Lusabaga, Tonny Sserwada and Godfrey Kitenda.
Speaking to some of the relatives and friends of the arrested people who witnessed all this they believed Hajji Musa was all along a spy.
Mr. Derrick Kato, one of the witnesses, said: “Three men came out of the car and ordered everyone not to get up.”
He said that whoever was being pointed at was manhandled into the car and three of them who were pointed at were handcuffed.
They sped off as they left while some of the people in the park tried following them to know where they were taking their friends.
The chairperson of Katosi Mr. Siperito Kasumba said: “I am aware of what happened.”
He said that he was at a burial when all this happened. He came back and was told of what happened at his absence.
He asked the government to intervene and help these people to find their loved ones.
Ms. Robina Nabangala, said: ” I am scared and in fear of sleeping in the house alone because I don’t know whether these men will come back and arrest me.”
However, on trying to contact the police in the area they said they have nothing to say about the matter.
