Chaotic scenes unfolded in Kasangati, Wakiso district on Wednesday as the police rushed to rescue a man, many people in the area accused of waylaying and sexually assaulting women.

Habib Uwimaana was apprehended by community members as he tried to rob a woman early on Wednesday morning. A crowd quickly gathered to lynch him before the police came to his rescue.

Police officers intervened to save the suspect by firing live bullets into the air in an attempt to disperse the angry mob.

“We have been worried about that man. We even fear moving out of our houses late in the night or early morning. We fear that he has even infected the victims with HIV. He should be castrated.” Angry women stressed.
