Fr. Josephat Ddungu, the chaplain of St. Augustine Church, says unidentified thug broke into the chapel on the night of August 12 at around midnight and made off with an unspecified sum of money, laptop, extension cables, boxes where the offertory for Mother Mary and Radio Maria are kept among other things.
He says they released CCTV footage to the public on social media on Sunday to help in the identification of the thief.
"So we're able to see him on CCTV camera footage and that is the video clip that we're circulating right now because he looks familiar from the way he went around he seems to have knowledge of where we keep our stuff," said Fr Ddundgu.
He says the same footage was shared with police on Monday morning to aid investigations. Fr. Ddungu however, couldn’t tell how much money was in the stolen offertory boxes. St Augustine Chapel is a catholic church that is a student spiritual congregating place at Makerere University.
It is one of the worship places at the university in addition to the Anglican Chapel Francis and the Makerere student Mosque.
