Talk about touching a leopard's behind; how could anyone steal from a man who decides how long you stay in prison!
But 30-year-old Alex Wandwasi did when he stole a computer belonging to Nakawa Court Chief Magistrate Jameson Karemani.
When Wandwasi, a resident of Kiganda in Kira, was taken to court, he pleaded guilty, saying he needed to buy food for his family.
Wandwasi had actually camped at the court daily, waiting for an opportunity.
On December 11, at about 1:00pm, he timed when the magistrate left his chambers to attend a meeting, then stole a Lenovo computer valued at sh2m.
Unfortunately, Johnson Twebaze, a security officer at the court, saw him. Twebaze would have easily confused him for an IT specialist taking a computer for repair, but became suspicious when Wandwasi dropped the computer and took off.
He communicated to officers at the gate, who arrested him.
