President Museveni on Sunday invited Resty Nakyambadde, a Special Forces Command (SFC) nurse, to show how security forces defeated a machete-wielding gang.
The President, in a calculation to let an ordinary citizen assure peers, invited Nakyambadde, a former nurse in greater Masaka area (now Special Forces nurse) to show security forces overpowering criminals on the 2018 New Year’s eve.
Nakyambadde highlighted the events that unfolded during her encounter with Kiddawalime, a notorious rapist and robber.
She telephoned her husband who alerted police whose pursuit forced one of the thugs to drop a mobile phone handset and security used the SIM-card information to map out, kill and or arrest the outlaws.
On the fateful day, Nakyambadde was attacked by a man identified as Kiddawalime who broke into her house and asked her to remove her knicker.
She went to her daughter Susan’s bedroom after seeing a touch outside.
She called for help but no one helped so she started calling her neighbors.
Meanwhile, the men broke into her house and asked for money.
She gave them only Shs25,000 but they refused until they took her to her bedroom.
Kiddawalime took all the money and left.
A few moments later, he returned and broke the door again.
“He asked me to stand up. I was putting on a night dress. He told me to remove it and hang it up. I did. Then he told me to remove my knicker. I remove it and he took my pictures. He told me to turn and he continued taking pictures. After, he told me to go on the bed but I asked him to first let me go to the bathroom and wash my feet which were dirty. Meanwhile, we heard a bullet outside and he moved out.”
By the time, she went outside, Kiddawalime had already been arrested by security forces.
Ugandans have since criticized the story as cooked and orchestrated to divert attention from the assassination attempt on Gen Katumba Wamala.
Kampala Lord Mayor, Erias Lukwago, said: “It was a gambled-up speech, and eventually the focus turned to Nakyambadde and Kalungu. The whole thing turned into mockery.”
