Every day that passes, thieves come up with new tricks to steal money and property from unsuspecting people. Currently, there is a CCTV video making rounds on social media where three yet-to-be-identified thieves disguised as employees of the National Water and Sewerage Corporation (NWSC) get access to the home of a Chinese national.
After pretending to be checking the water meter as showed around by the Chinese national, one of the thieves grabbed the homeowner by the neck and dragged him into the house. It is reported that once inside, they took hostage of the house occupants and robbed money to the tune of over Shs85 million.
Kampala Metropolitan Spokesperson Luke Owoyesigire confirmed the robbery which happened on Wednesday, March 31, 2021, at Lower Estate Edinburg Avenue, Kyambogo, Kampala.
