SECURITY operatives in Nyendo, Masaka municipality were forced to fire live bullets in air to disperse huge crowds of bodaboda riders who attacked Nyendo police station after the death of their colleague.

Hussein Walugembe, a businessman in Masaka burnt himself inside the office of Masaka traffic department.

In the process, one traffic officer was injured and very many files were burnt to ashes.

It is alleged that trouble started when officers impounded Walugembe’s motorcycle on Tuesday at 7:30pm during curfew hours and took it to Masaka police yard for safe custody.

At around 8:00pm, Walugembe followed them and pleaded with them to return his bike because it was his only source of income.

According to his colleagues, police officers ordered him to pay the Shs.150,000 if he wanted his bodaboda back.

When he pleaded that he could not afford the huge amount of money they were asking for, the officers insisted that they will not give him his bike until he pays the money.

Early the next morning at 8:00am, Walugembe stormed the traffic office with a Rwenzori mineral water bottle full of petrol and threatened to kill himself if they do not give him his motorcycle.

The officer in charge told him to pay the money they had asked from him.

Walugembe swore that if they did not give him his bike, he was going to die with the officer.

He then opened the bottle and showered himself with the petrol and poured some in the office, he removed a matchbox from his pocket and lit himself.

He tried to grab the traffic officer to burn with him but he sneaked through his armpits and took off.

Police officers panicked and looked for fire extinguishers to stop the fire. By the time they got some extinguishers from the nearby petrol station, most of the traffic files had been destroyed and Walugembe was dead.

ASP Muhmood Nsubuga the greater Masaka police spokesperson said that the body of the deceased was taken to Masaka mortuary for postmortem as investigations kick off.

According to Dr. Seenyonjo from Masaka Regional Referral Hospital, the deceased died from severe extensive burns.

Police has opened a file under SD:35/02/07/2020.

Walugembe’s body was taken to his home area at Kyajubira for burial.

He has left two children and a wife.
