The most wanted gang leader in Wobulenzi town council in Luweero district is no more after an angry mob descended on him and sent him to his creator . David Ssemambo alias Mambo was killed at Wobulenzi Police Station following his arrest this morning.


The thug had just been picked up together with his aides including Dalton Muyomba, Charles Ssettoke, Farouk Kigozi Ashraf and Alex Ssebunya with machetes that they have been using to attack and rob residents.  


For a while, residents of Wobulenzi town council have lived in fear of attacks from the gang members and at the time of arrest, the gang had plotted to rob a local hardware shop in Wobulenzi on Tuesday night but information leaked to police, which has been pursuing them.   


The Luweero District Police Commander, Abraham Tukundane says five gangsters were arrested from Bombo town council after tip off and were transferred to Wobulenzi Police Station around 7am this morning to answer several criminal charges.


However, Ssemambo attempted to flee but residents surrounded him and stoned him. He breathed his last while being rushed to Luweero Hospital. Later, residents stormed the Police station demanding that police hands over the remaining four suspects for lynching in vain. 


Ssemambo was described as a notorious gang leader and  his murder is a signal to the end of the gang.   


The other suspects are facing charges of burglary, rape, robbery, murder and theft among others. Some of the residents, say the gang members have been terrorizing their homes with machetes robbing anything they come across. And that the death of Ssemambo is a sigh of relief to the community.
