A Special Forces Command (SFC), deserter Samuel Mulondo has been arrested on allegations of plotting to attack Luuka central police station.

Mulondo (formerly registered as RA 217246) was arrested on Wednesday while wearing Islamic clerical attire and seated outside Luuka central police station.

His arrest followed discreet enquiries by the area police leadership, who became suspicious of Mulondo alias Mulondo Abdul. Police picked interest in Mulondo after he started frequenting the police station for over a week without any viable reasons.

One of the officers who spoke on condition of anonymity says that they have been tracking Mulondo for the past three days and they found out that he wore casual clothing at night, and slept in bars while camouflaging as a Muslim cleric during the daytime.

He adds that Mulondo was also seen 'inspecting' Luuka police station on the nights of 19th and 20th, December, which prompted his arrest. He further says that, at the time of his arrest, Mulondo wore three trousers, two vests, one shirt, a kanzu, cap, had undisclosed documents linking him to the SFC and a beer bottle, which had been hidden in the pocket of his jacket.

Samuel Musiho, the Luuka resident district commissioner, says that Mulondo was masquerading as a Muslim cleric aiding vulnerable people to access justice. Musiho says that Mulondo joined SFC in 2008 and deserted in 2018 with a gun and he has been on the force's wanted list for close to five years now.

Musiho adds that Mulondo has been taken to Magamaga military barracks for further interrogation. Mulondo who was briefly interrogated at Musiho's office before being referred to Magamaga military barracks reportedly said that he deserted on personal grounds and never harboured intentions of creating harm to both security installations and the entire community at large.

There have been several attacks on police stations across the country, where some officers have lost lives and a number of guns lost. Government agencies have contradicted each other on who and the purpose of the attacks on police stations.

In other words, the usual heartless suspects. They are inherently subversive: masquerade as Muslims, implicate, bear false witness, kill police officers on duty at Road Blocks, abduct, torture, murder in cold-blood and indefinitely imprison, innocent Ugandans.

But is the UPDF a national army, or it is still the criminal National Resistance Army outfit perpetuating what it is best at doing: subversion and terrorism, in order to justify Gen Tibuhaburwa NRM/A relevance in perpetuity.

Otherwise, why do the Personnel like Mulondo, RA 217246 still bear the RA registration number BS

Thanks for the good work of tracking such dangerous persons like Mulondo. Such persons are not different from the terrorists or extremists who kill or brutally mug ordinary citizens.

Their offensive attacks don't only target police, army, ministers, or NRM people, but include also those not participating in politics. Bad people.

Wow! Obugalo obugalo ... well done police. You're extremely on alert and thorough when the matter is to do with yourselves and the honcho. In fact, you don't even pay yourselves "facilitation" to do your job in this regard.

So, what happens when the matter is to do with the countless victims of abductions, thefts, justice miscarriage, etc? How come there it's the well-to-do who generally get "justice"?

Are you guys minting tax payers' cash to only look out for yourselves and the honcho? Are the rest of bona-fide Ugandans taken for granted?
