Ambulance donated by MP used to ferry terrorists

17 March 2015, 20:11 Godfrey Olukya

Kampala - Police in Uganda have discovered that an ambulance that was bought by a member of parliament has been used to transport terrorists in the country.

The driver of the ambulance, Abubaker Kayiwa has been arrested. Police are also carrying out investigations to establish whether the MP who bought the ambulance, Betty Nambooze, has any links with the terrorists the driver has been transporting.

It has been established by police that Kayiwa used to transport suspected terrorists to different parts of the country easily using the ambulance because it is given right of way especially with sirens on.

Nambooze reportedly bought the ambulance to help women in her constituency of Mukono municipality to access hospitals easily while in labor.

Uganda police spokesman, Fred Enanga said, ''We arrested the driver. We are carrying out investigations as we arrest more suspects.''

He said that so far six people have been arrested.

He said that by the time they stopped the ambulance, it was carrying nine young children aged between 9 and 15 years who were undergoing  training in terrorism activities.

Police also discovered a place at Mpoma village, 30kms east of Kampala where the children were being trained in terrorism.

''We are looking for the parents of the children so we can establish how their children ended up being trained in terrorism,'' said Enanga.
