TWO suspected car thieves were yesterday arrested at State House Nakasero as they vandalised a car parked near the entrance to the presidential residence.

Frank Lubega, 30, and Basil Walusimbi, 27, who arrived in a private car, UAL 504R, at around 9:00am, reportedly used a master key to break into the vehicle.

Esau Katunguka, a State House employee, who was reading a newspaper in his car a few metres from the thieves’ target, raised an alarm. The suspects jumped over the Nakasero Primary School fence and fled.

However, bodaboda motorcyclists nearby gave a chase and nabbed the men inside the school, where the suspects offered them sh50,000.

The bodaboda men rejected the bribe and instead started beating up the suspects.

“They found an empty slot in our parking yard and drove in. Leaving the engine running, they came out.

One opened a newspaper as his colleague used a master key to break into the car. Since I was in a vehicle with tinted glass, they did not notice me.

To trap them, I got out and removed the key in their car,” Katunguka narrated.
