A man who has been masquerading as a school inspector to extort money from head teachers last week survived a mob. Simon Kitimbo, a resident of Kamuli town, was beaten by residents of Buwoya in Bugulumbya sub-county in Kamuli district after he was exposed.

On the fateful day, Kitimbo, who was being trailed, had gone to Buwoya Holy Child Primary School. He was surrounded by residents and beaten, before local defence forces rescued him.

Kitimbo sustained big cuts on the head, shoulders and back and his shirt was stained with blood. He was taken to Namwendwa Health centre for treatment and detained at Kamuli Police Station.

The local administration Police chief, George Kalamu, said Kitimbo claimed he was the ‘district health inspector of schools’, a position that does not exist in the public service.

Kitimbo claimed he was attached to the education office. “He has been targeting private schools and threatening to close them down over lack of minimum facilities like toilets,” Kalamu explained.

The education officer, Joseph Musoke, said Kitimbo had been signing visitors’ books as Moses Mulondo, a former worker in the education department.

Musoke said Kitimbo also visited schools with congested classrooms and promised to help them get Universal Primary Education funding.
