OBONGI, UGANDA: Members of the Obongi District Women Association based in Obongi town council almost lynched one of their members on Friday for illegally removing iron sheets for the grinding machine given to the association by President Museveni.
The woman whose name has been withheld by this publication because of the ongoing investigations by police narrowly escaped and cheated death at the hands of her colleague who wanted to pelt her with stones.
According to the RDC Obongi district, Mr Samuel Mpimbaza Hashaka, the chairperson and the treasurer of the group vanished with the money sometime back leaving the group in total sadness, adding that “Although the grinding machine for which the money was meant no longer works, we need to investigate the mismanagement in the group.”
One of the members (holding a stone in her hand) speaking to this reporter with fury and rage said; “The saga of iron sheets has now taken a new twist up to the grassroot level. We shall kill you today because of our iron sheet if you joke.”
“This is not the prime minister’s office iron sheet where you come and remove at any time you want and you are not beaten here in Obongi we beat you,” the member added.
