EDITORâ€”I wish to warn the public about a new breed of thieves who prey on hapless drivers lost in the maze of identical roundabouts and junctions on the Northern Bypass. As you lean out or even briefly leave your car to ask for directions they pounce on you!
I lost my precious dual sim Samsung phone to these crooks at the turnoff to Bweyogerere from one of the roundabouts. I request the authorities concerned to make the directions be a bit more helpful. There are directions reading, â€œTo the Sudanâ€ and â€œNorthern Kenyaâ€. I assure you that over 95% of motorists on the bypass are neither going to the Sudan nor to northern Kenya.
They are ordinary Ugandans trying to beat the jam to get home to their wives or husbands, to drop children at school or to their place of work. Who cares about the Sudan?
As I did not keep a record of my phoneâ€™s serial number, it cannot be tracked. I appeal to anyone who knows about suspiciously low-priced valuable Samsung phones with dual sim cards to please get in touch with me.
