Kampala, Uganda | URN | The Katikkiro of Buganda, Charles Peter Mayiga has wondered why security agencies have failed to stop the murders in greater Masaka region even when the assailants give notice of their intended attacks.

He says that although security has arrested some of the suspects, there are many unanswered questions lingering in the minds of Ugandans.

Machete-wielding gangs have killed more than 20 people in greater Masaka over the past six weeks.

According to Mayiga, security agencies need to use the same zeal they use to clump down on unwanted political activities to stop the murder of innocent Ugandans.

He made requests to the government to resolve the murders in Masaka.

Mayiga was speaking at an event where Buganda loyalists from different sub-counties in Bugerere County presented a cheque of Shillings 5.4million to support kingdom activities.

In 2017 and 2018, several people in greater Masaka lost their lives in similar attacks by machete-wielding thugs.

The thugs would inform their victims of the impending attacks and would make good on their promises.
