An Indian businessman in Kampala is part of nineteen suspected vandals of electricity infrastructure arrested by the joint anti-vandalism task force in Kampala.

The joint operations involving the Uganda Police Force-UPF, Uganda People’s Defense Forces-UPDF, and power distributors Umeme commenced last week within Kampala, Wakiso and Mukono districts following the increasing cases of vandalism targeting electricity infrastructure and illegal connections.

Stephen Illongole, Umeme’s Media Relations Manager says that in the second operation in areas of Kisugu, Kansanga, and Muyenga, they recovered an assortment of electrical wires and Umeme appliances.

The suspects will appear before the utility court at Buganda road. The new law suggests that any convicted person of vandalism or illegal connection is liable to a fine of Shillings 1 billion or imprisonment of 12 years or serve both punishments.
