Police has arrested top serial contract killers that have been terrorising Kampala.
Police flying squad in a swoop netted 11 of the gang members, recovering a gun and 110 rounds of ammunition.
Police spokesperson, Fred Enanga, told press in Kampala on Wednesday that the gang specialises in contract killing and armed robbery.
They have been using an Ipsum car registration number UAN 290S to do their jobs.
According to Enanga, between January and February this year alone, the group shot seven people killing two on spot in Kawempe and Bukoto.
He said members of the gang belonged to the former UNRF rebel group in West Nile.
The first Uganda National Rescue Front was formed to oppose Milton Obote during his second term (1980-1985) as president of Uganda.
The UNRF was composed of former supporters of Idi Amin, and headed by Brigadier Moses Ali, formerly Amin’s Minister of Finance.
After the fall of Obote in July 1985, over 1000 of the UNRF joined Yoweri Museveni’s government.
Moses Ali held a large number and variety of positions in Museveni’s government, including Minister of Tourism and Wildlife, and Minister of Youth, Culture and Sport.
In April 1990 he was arrested on treason charges, and incarcerated until June 1992, when he was released and acquitted.
This did not prevent his later being appointed Minister of Internal Affairs, Minister for Disaster Preparedness, and Deputy Prime Minister.
