A drunk police officer who was on escort duty on Thursday went berserk and fired a shot while aboard a Standard Gauge Railway (SGR) cargo train.

According to Emali OCS Gerrishon Murithi said the incident happened around 6pm on an SGR train that was heading to Mombasa.

He said police officer, Bernard Ng’ang’a, and his colleague Cina Okul were aboard the train from Nairobi terminus on escort duties.

FIRED BULLET

On reaching Athi River station, Ng’ang’a started drinking alcohol in a plastic bottle and became unruly.

In Sultan Hamud, Ng’ang’a ordered his colleague Okul to tell the locomotive drivers to stop the train lest he shoots them.

He then corked his G3 rifle and fired a bullet through the window.

Okul alerted the drivers who eventually stopped at Emali SGR Station.

DISARMED

Sergeant Sammy Korir and Paul Njeru of Emali Railways police station intervened and disarmed Ng’ang’a.

Murithi said Ng’ang’a was released from the escort duties and replaced with Omar Kibwana at Emali Railways Police Station.

There was no damage on the train and no one was injured.

Uganda’s ruling party endorses Museveni for sixth term as President

Published

on

Uganda’s ruling party National Resistance Movement (NRM) top organ has endorsed President Yoweri Museveni as its flag bearer in the upcoming presidential elections.

The decision gives Museveni a shot for a sixth consecutive five-year term in office. Should he win, Museveni will have an opportunity to rule for a record four decades.

Uganda’s next presidential and general elections are two years away.

NRM party members had at a recent retreat christened President Museveni the ‘theoretician and principal strategist of the movement’.

“To emphatically recommend to the membership of the Movement and its organs that Yoweri Museveni, our leader and General of the African resistance, continues leading the Movement in 2021 and beyond as we eliminate the bottlenecks ‘to transformation’, the members noted in resolution after the retreat,” the party announced.

Asked whether the party had given Museveni the nod,  NRM spokesman said; “Exactly. That is what it means. I can only say that there is no danger in doing that. There is no law breached. This matter can continue to be sold to other party members as we get closer to the National Delegates Conference in November, this year.”

Suspicision that Museveni would seek re-elections gained momentum when he strongly supported a contentious Constitutional Amendment Bill, now law, to remove 75 years as the upper threshold age beyond which a person would be ineligible to stand for President.

The provision meant that Museveni, now 74 years old, would have been unable to contest.
