Security guards awarded for killing, wrestling armed thugs

Two security guards have received a reward of Shs200,000 each from The Uganda Private Security Association (TUPSA) for their heroic acts.

Jackson Sande and Emmanuel Nakeriya, who are attached to Tiger Security Group Limited and Securex Security Company respectively, were rewarded for killing and wrestling down armed robbers at their workstations in Kampala.

An unarmed Sande wrestled an armed robber at Fortune Bet in Bwaise–Kawempe in the wee hours of Thursday morning last week. The robber took off abandoning a firearm at the scene.

Nakeriya, who missed the function after losing a relative, was extolled for shooting dead a machete wielding robber who had attacked a guard at Rubaga Catholic Shrines together with three others.

The TUPSA chairperson, Grace Matsiko said in addition to rewarding the guards, they had been promoted to the rank of Corporal by their respective companies.
