Since 2012, Uganda has been experiencing a wave of high profile murders mainly orchestrated by assailants raiding on boda bodas or motorbikes.
Government has done less or nothing to put a stop on these killings. Many people including Muslim sheikhs, former police spokesperson Andrew Felix Kaweesi, Maj. Muhammad Kiggundu, former Arua MP Ibrahim Abiriga, Afande Muhammad Kirumira just to mention but a few have fallen victims of these treacherous murders.
So today we bring you some tips which could be used by surviving Ugandans to protect themselves from being gunned down by the ruthless assailants moving on motorbikes.
1. Be observant when you are moving around in your car, make sure you observe every move of any motorbike rider trailing you.
2. They say if you can’t win them join them that is in case you know who the real killers are.
3. If possible, work from home. With this dot com era everything is almost possible you can stay home and do your work online.
4. In case of any attack while travelling in your car, take cover and I mean ….a real cover if it means engulfing yourself in car seats, do so.
5. For high profiled government officials, an armored car is paramount. By armored I mean real bullet proofed cars not these Chinese made armored cars.
6. Never allow any boda boda/ motorbike rider be close to you for a long time, if ‘symptoms persists’ increase speed while driving towards a police station.
7. If by any chance you find boda boda guys staged near your home, pretending to be having a mechanical problem, my friend just go back indoors and call it a day.
8. For those loaded fellows, if for example you cruise a tinted V8, go back to the car bond, buy three more V8s same colour, always move in a convoy this will help you disguise yourself from the faces of murderers.
9.If you’re used to using one route to and from home from January to December, please stop that. If possible always change routes to confuse your enemies who can stage somewhere to murder you.
10. Lastly, if you can buy some clown faces, always put a different artificial face to always disguise yourself from the eyes of the ruthless murderers.
Hope that will help!
