Armed thugs on Monday night shot and killed two women at a mobile money shop in Zana cell, Bunamwaya, Makindye-Ssabagabo in Waskiso District.
Kampala Metropolitan Police spokesperson Patrick Onyango said in a statement that the five armed thugs riding on three unidentified motor cycles robbed the victims of unspecified amount of money before shooting them dead.
They were shot near their shop as they were heading home.
“We want to thank the area police (Kirimanyanga police post) for responding in time and the 999 patrol for coordinating the search for the thugs,” Onyango explained.
He identified the victims as Harriet Naluwadde, 33 [mobile money agent] and her worker Moreen Nakabubi, 25, both residents of Zana cell.
This comes just days after six heavily armed thugs also raided Cheap General Hardware shop in Nansana municipality, Wakiso district.
They shot dead three people and robbed about Sh385m from the victims.
