A combined security team of the army and police in Napak district is hunting for unknown thugs who broke into the ancestral home of the Army General Court Martial chairperson, Lt. Gen. Andrew Gutti and made off with his Massey Ferguson tractor.

The thugs broke into the General’s home in Iriiri village in Iriiri sub-county, Napak district at around 12 am on Wednesday morning. John Lokut, the Iriiri village defense secretary, says the incident was shocking. "Imagine breaking the General's home, these are killers,” he said.

Michael Longole, the Karamoja region spokesperson, says the thugs abandoned the tractor in the nearby bush when it ran out of fuel.

"We are looking for them and they will be charged with theft and trespass," Longole said.

Bosco Angela, another resident, says the incident comes a week after unknown people burnt the Gutti's orange farm.

"I don't know whether it was a deliberate move or it was burnt by a group of youth who were hunting for rats,” he said.

According to Angela, locals burn grass in the hunt for rats whenever there is drought.

Gen. Guti and another Army Chief shared Kidepo National Park between themselves and even have Land Tittles, where is UWA and Min. of Tourism!

One hopes this British well made tractor was not under used in the village.

That is why such rich military farmers should make the efforts to build up a cooperative neighbourhood spirit. That way many more villagers will prosper in mechanised farming.

Finding these culprits and locking them for years in a government prison is not good enough.

Rehabilitating them on this rich military farmer' extensive farm will help the security situation in that farmland.

Gutti should have shot the thieves and relieved the country of that number thieves !!!

Am angry at Gen. Gutti for not catching/shooting those Ugandan thieves!!!

Quoting Lysol:

No, Sir. Theft cannot be justified in any way.
