An operation led by Kale Kayihura, the Inspector General of Police in Kampala yesterday netted 15 suspected members of Kifeesi criminal gang.
The suspects, according to URN, were picked up from their hide out in a cave at Agape Christian Center Katwe II parish, in Makindye division.
Agape Christian center belongs to an unidentified woman, who picks up street kids in the guise of helping them.

After the arrest of the criminals, Kayihura turned attention to journalists covering Forum for Democratic Change Defiance campaign activities.

Several others were driven out of FDC head offices along Entebbe road after the arrest of FDC preachers and supporters.
Kayihura also placed Besigye under house arrest till he gives up the defiance campaign.
