Joint security agencies are probing 33 roadblocks mounted by men donned in army attires on various roads across the country in the last two months orchestrating robberies.
A number of people have reported incidents of robbery involving gunmen in army uniforms during night hours and senior security sources have revealed that currently, 33 robbery roadblocks have been erected majorly on three highways; Kampala-Mubende, Kampala-Masaka and Kampala-Gulu.
The sources say 21 out of the criminal roadblocks have been erected on the stretch between Mityana and Mubende districts.
Brig Gen Felix Kulayigye, the army spokesperson says that the army was equally concerned about the robbery roadblocks mounted by men in military uniform and explained that at an appropriate time they will tell the public about the strides the joint security operations will have made against the gangs.
