Semu Kigarama, the manager Jetset, explains that the thugs cut the roof of the forex bureau to access the safe, where the money was kept. He also says that thugs also stole the company's internet modem and his eye glasses. 

According to Kigarama, he learnt of the robbery at 8:30a.m on Tuesday morning  when he opened the office for work.

Following the robbery, police used a sniffer dog to track the suspects. The dog led the officers to the home of Robert Turyakira, a security guard attached to Security Plus Uganda Limited, who was guarding the bureau last night.

Charles Okotto, the Kisoro district police commander, says that the company's internet modem and eye glasses were found in Turyakira's room. Turyakira is currently on the run.

According to Okotto, two staff of the forex bureau, have been arrested and are detained at Kisoro police station.

This is the second time thugs have robbed the forex bureau. Early last year, unknown thugs robbed unspecified millions of money. In August 2012, the bureau's Gulu branch was also robbed of Shs 40 million by armed gangs.

In 1962 we got independence and we lost it to Idi's goons. 1979 Tanzania liberated us, we gave it away to Obote 2 henchmen.

1986 The Bushmen came along, we got relative peace, relative security and absolute corruption and chaos and now we have a run-away driverless train. What do you expect?

Quoting rubangkene:

But Rubangakene, who is to blame? Starting with Luweero in 1981, up to 2005 (northern ); how can you talk of "relative peace" when the country was engulfed in a vicious armed conflict, started by non other than the very criminal who harps about relative peace.

It is irrational! I am surprised, many Ugandan don't realize we are in a state of insecurity. e.g. how can a president travel in a 40-vehicle convoy as security detail?

Is that security or insecurity. The wife is also insulated by about the same number of bodyguards.

And for the rest of the first family members, you would think are resting in peace: They are non existent because of insecurity.

In other words, if the president feels that intensity of insecurity, it becomes logical that the country is not secure.

Besides, the current spate of corruption, armed robberies and kidnapping, are signs of an insecure republic, in a state of "worry hurry". Hence the grabbing, excess baggage, bodyguards and arming up to the teeth.

It is hell on earth! Everyday the so call VIPs are speeding as if on a "no escape" rush.

Lakwena,
The "relative peace and relative security" from 1986 I referred to has hidden meanings; sometimes you have to read between the lines....!

Understood. I read above the line:.

But to avoid being misunderstood, put it (irony) in quote. Otherwise, because most are now worked up because of Mr. M7 decption, you risk being crucified for double crossing.
