Masindi RDC, Rose Kirabira Kobusingye has rejected a police report that says a man that stormed into her office with a sharp knife had a mental illness.
Joseph Serugo ran into trouble when he stormed into the RDC’s office on 7th July 2021 saying he had an important document to deliver.
When he was tasked to present the document he wanted to deliver to the RDC, a sharp knife dropped out of his pocket prompting the RDC’s security personnel to arrest him and whisk him off to Masindi Central Central police station, It later emerged that the suspect was indeed mentally ill.
While speaking to the media, the RDC has dismissed the report and expressed disappointment over the way police handled the case.
She also wondered why police took the man to court and later remanded him instead of taking him to a health facility if he indeed had mental issues.
