Wakiso, Uganda | URN | Three ‘mysterious fire outbreaks’ in a space of two days have forced the former Nakaseke Woman MP also National Resistance Movement (NRM) party treasurer Rose Namayanja Nsereko to relocate from her Kasangati based home.
Namayanja says her survival instincts and advice from her friends compelled her to vacate the doomed house. At least three fire breakouts in a space of two days were reported at Namayanja’s home in Masooli village in Kasangati town council in Wakiso district.
Deputy Kampala Metropolitan Police spokesperson, Luke Owoyesigire said two suspects have been arrested but declined to reveal their identities for fear of jeopardizing police investigations.
“The actual cause of the fire is still unknown but investigating officers have already embarked on the investigations. We also believe that the arrested might have some information in regard to the incidents,” Owoyesigire said.
According to Owoyesigire, the first fire incident happened on Thursday 29th evening when the annex housing a saloon and gym burnt to ashes. He says the second incident was recorded on Friday 30th morning when the fire started in the main house in the sitting room but was put off.
He, however, says in the course of putting off this fire in the sitting room, another fire erupted from the quarters where the housemaid sleeps. Namayanja notes that the fire in the living room was spotted by her employees who helped to put it out despite the fact that it destroyed several properties.
