Power distributor Umeme has raided and disconnected the home and medical school belonging to Katikamu North MP Denis Ssekabira for alleged power theft.

The weekend operation across Luwero town council targeting a number of houses and buildings started from the legislator’s home in Kizito Zone. After failing to gain entry through the main gate, Umeme officials climbed the electricity pole and disconnected the power cables connecting to the MP's home.

Acting on intelligence information, Umeme officials raided St Denison Health Training School in Kavule Zone, which belongs to the legislator where they discovered illegal connections. They also disconnected the school from the power grid. 

Peter Kaujju, head of communications and marketing at Umeme confirmed the development, saying their teams on the ground found suspect connections. According to Kaujju they have commenced investigations against the legislator who is yet to make a comment.

Wait, thought he was NUP. So besides him and other opposition MPs that refused to return last years 30M UGX bribe, how exactly are these politicians different from the NRM they vilify?

Wama steal away. It’s your turn to eat. Just pity those who believe a lot in you and Bobi mbu you are a breathe of fresh air.

It is unfortunate indeed for such a crime to continue happening under the management of these very important people!

Many countries in these hard times, have come out to help pay their energy consumers' bills. Uganda seems bent on increasing units of energy charges as the country exports its modern energy production world wide!

Anybody suggesting that the suspect should be removed from office which is a good idea which will result in all offices in Uganda remain empty because all their occupiers are thieves.

These include those thieves who steal under false pretences of calling themselves Balokole . Uganda is a failed State despite opposition by are anemic to factual evidence
