Summary:

  • Milly Naluwenda, a clerk at the Buganda Kingdom’s traditional court, was arrested in Lungujja Parish. Her son reported she was forcibly taken by men in civilian attire who fired shots to deter interference.

Milly Naluwenda, employed as a clerk at the Buganda Kingdom’s traditional court, commonly referred to as Kisekwa, has been apprehended. She was taken into custody in Lungujja Parish on Thursday by a team from the Directorate of Crime Intelligence (DCI).

Paul Werikhe, Naluwenda’s son, informed reporters that a Toyota Hiace, known as Drone, was parked at his mother’s shop in Kitunzi zone. Men dressed in civilian attire forcibly seized her and bundled her into the vehicle.

Werikhe recounted that during and after the arrest, the operatives discharged multiple rounds, presumably to deter neighbors from intervening. “I lost consciousness when the bullets started flying. I estimate around nine shots were fired as they took my mother. I’m unaware of who took her and for what purpose,” Werikhe stated.

Patrick Onyango, the Kampala Metropolitan Police Spokesperson, confirmed Naluwenda’s arrest, stating, “Last night, the crime intelligence unit conducted an operation in Lungujja, Rubaga Division, Kampala, and apprehended Milly Naluwenda to assist in the ongoing investigation by the Uganda Police Force.”

While Onyango did not disclose specifics of the investigation, he urged Naluwenda’s family to remain composed during the process.

There are indications that Naluwenda’s arrest is linked to the recent demise of businessman Eng Daniel Bbosa Lwomwa, aged 69, who also served as the leader of the Ndiga (sheep) clan in the Buganda kingdom.

Bbosa, the proprietor of Transa Electrical Company Limited, was fatally shot by three assailants riding a Haojue motorcycle with registration number plate UFX 854F, disguised with a cell tape to read UEX 754E.

The incident occurred at the junction to his home in Kikandwa zone, Lungujja Parish, Lubaga division, while he was driving with his wife Glady’s Bbosa and their house helper Peace Nambale, in a Land Cruiser UAH 637X.

Bodaboda riders pursued the assailants, knocking down their motorcycle. They apprehended one assailant identified as Enock Sserunkuma, while Noah Lugya, another assailant, was spared to aid in identifying those who commissioned the attack. The third assailant managed to escape and is being pursued by security agencies.

Reportedly, three individuals have been arrested based on information provided by Lugya, who has regained consciousness but remains under tight security at Mulago Hospital.

Lugya identified his mobile phone among those collected by the police at the scene, which is being used to trace the individuals who allegedly ordered the assassination of Bbosa.
