The Standards Court Chief Magistrate, Gladys Kamasanyu has been admitted in the Intensive Care Unit at IHK Hospital after being attacked by yet to be identified thugs who hit her and made off with some of her personal belongings.
According to the sources, the incident took place around Green Hill where she had gone to pick her child’s PLE result slip.
The said group of thugs, believed to have been trailing her, were traveling on three boda bodas. It is said the group descended on her just outside the school premises.
“In the process, one of them kicked her hard and she fell facing down. They then made off with some of her personal effects including a mobile phone and bag.”
Meanwhile, Uganda Police say they have kick-started investigations into circumstances under which Kamasanyu was attacked in broad daylight by yet to be known assailants on Saturday afternoon.
According to police, the judge was beaten by unknown thugs who made off with her valuables. “She was beaten up by thugs just as she reached the gate of Green hill Academy where she had gone to collect PLE results for her child,” Owoyesigire said. “At the time of her clobbering, nobody could respond instantly save for the school guards who arrived when the thugs had made off with her valuables. Our area police responded after 3 hours. But we are investigating the incident and we hope to apprehend all the culprits,” he noted.
