Ms. Betty Nakyambadde, is one of the many robbery victims of Mukoko village in Bukulula Sub-County, Kalungu District in Greater Masaka. She was attacked at her home by notorious Bukomansimbi thugs on 10th April 2018.
On Friday, Ms. Resty Nakyambadde met the President at Mr. Musevenis country home in Rwakitura, Kiruhuura District. She was in the company of a team of security people that were led by Masaka Brigade, Joseph Semwanga.
President Museveni thanked Ms. Nakyambade for being brave and alerting the neighbors who later collaborated with security to rescue her.
"I want to thank my granddaughter for being brave. These are the soldiers we are remaining with," he said.
On the fateful night, thugs attacked Ms. Nakyambadde, these were two criminals who had been arrested but escaped early this year in Bukomansimbi District where they attacked and murdered five people on New Years Eve.
Another notorious thug, Musa Galiwango, is currently on the run while his accomplice, Kidawalime Muhammad, was killed by angry residents.
President Museveni directed that Ms. Nakyambade, who is an Enrolled Nurse, should be given a job. He also commended the area Police Officer in Charge, ASP Twinomugisha Steven, for quickly responding to Nakyambadde’s call in time and vigilance. He directed that he, too, be rewarded.
Regional Police Commander for Greater Masaka, SP Latif Zaake, asked the public to join the move to end these robberies.
