Police in Kisoro district have discovered a gun that was stolen from a police officer who was murdered by assailants. The gun that was taken is AK47 rifle belonging to the deceased.
On 2nd August this year Moses Kilongosi who was attached to the Field Force Unit, assailants attacked him while on duty at the home of the Resident State Attorney of Kisoro district, David Mugamba. Mugamba’s home is near Kisoro View Guest House along Mutanda Road.
The Kigezi region police spokesperson Elly Maate says that the gun was recovered yesterday by young men who were grazing cows at Airstrip in Kyahi sub county Kisoro district. He says that when the boys saw it wrapped in a polythene bag, they reported to police, which picked it without magazine and bat.
Maate is calling on everybody to be vigilant in informing police when they see anything like a riffle to minimize on the poor usage.
