A Local Council V councillor is currently nursing severe injuries after being badly beaten by a mob that caught him stealing.
Hon Kakwangire Deus aka Kigirikani, LC5 Councillor for Rubanda town council in Rubanda district was allegedly caught stealing in Sheema district.
The incident happened Wednesday during a funeral in the district.
He was badly beaten by mob and later rescued by Sheema district RDC Frank Kyerere Besigye.
He is currently admitted at Kabwohe health centre 1V under tight security.
It is also reported that one of his eyes was plucked out during the beating.
According to a National Resistance Movement [NRM] leader from Kabale district, this is not Kakwangire’s first time to steal in public.
He allegedly was caught doing the same at Namboole during an NRM conference. It is not clear what he stole and how the matter was resolved then.
Sources within the region claimed Kankwangire is a known “typical thief” who has matured in the game.
