Man Threatens to Kill Ugandan Judges

Assistant Superintendent of Police –ASP Charles Twine, identified the arrested man as Ivan Samuel Ssebadduka, a resident of Zzana town along Entebbe road in Wakiso district.

Police said Ssebadduka wrote a letter abusing Chief Justice Alfonse Owinyi Dollo but also added that the judges are going to be killed in not more than a week. Twine said Ssebadduka’s threats could not be treated lightly since some of the recent threats towards prominent persons have actually turned into murder.

“As police, we have capacity to protect the judges but we cannot ignore these threats. Such threats have previously happened and people have indeed been killed. We have arrested him and we need to know what his actual motive is,” ASP Twine said.
