Pakwach launches ‘operation Shujaa’: 36 suspected criminals arrested

(Last Updated On: 22 November 2023)

Pakwach | Security authorities in Pakwach district say they have launched an operation almost similar to that manned by the popular Brig. Gen, Dick Olum’s.

Brig Gen Olum is the commander of Operation Shujaa, a “lethal military operation” targeting ADF rebels and their associates in Western Uganda.

According to Pakwach Resident District Commissioner (RDC) Mr Eseru Paul, who doubles as the head of security explains that in the last three months, the crime rate has been reducing.

RDC Eseru wants to further reduce the crime rates to what he calls “dismal levels”.

“Despite these achievements, cases of houses and shop breakings keep creeping in,” he tells tndNews on Wednesday.

These operations launched Tuesday night will not spare any wrongdoers and criminal-minded elements in the district, he adds.

The operations will continue even after Christmas to allow people to celebrate the festive season peacefully.

Last night’s intelligence-led operations saw 36 shisha, marijuana and bangi smokers rounded up by security operatives.

Theft-related cases, houses and shop breakings that had happened are highly attributed to these notorious characters who masquerade and maraud around drinking and smoking all forms of leaves including human hair, reveals RDC Eseru.

The head of security in Pakwach vows that he will not tolerate insecurity and criminality in the district, further warning lodges and hotel owners who deliberately refuse to capture details of clients that they will face dire consequences for defying presidential security directives issued on 13 September 2023.
