A 27-year-old man s is nursing injuries at Ages Medical Centre in Wakiso district after he was attacked by suspected robbers on his way home from work.

Moses Kabenge, a resident  of Namusera in Wakiso District, was on November 17 robbed and badly beaten by unknown people. He sustained a fracture on his left hand besides losing two phones, his national identity card, ATM card, some hard cash of around sixty thousand shillings.

Dr James Byaluhanga of Ages Medical Centre explains Kabenge’s condition. "He was badly beaten and he broke his left hand and his spinal cord was damaged, this may take him some time to talk on his own but we are doing our part as doctors."

Olivia Namanda Kabenge told Journalism@Mak that she last comminuted with her husband before noon on the day he was attacked. "I last comminuted with him before noon and later on past midnight I received a call from Byaruhanga James a doctor at Ages Medical Centre Wakiso informing me that my husband had been admitted there,” she explained.

Kabenge’s mother, Robinah Kizza, says the condition of his son is worsening, "My son is in a worrying condition since he was brought here, he can't eat properly and he is bleeding too much and more still his left hand has been broken," she lamented

Nantaba Aminah, a sister to Kabenge accused the police at Namusera for doing little to apprehend the attackers. "The police force of Namusera didn't take any step forward to search around the place and arrest the robbers who attacked my brother and this will enable them next time to do the same thing to another person since the police kept a deaf ear," she said.

The police has yet to commented on this story.
