A section of Businessmen in Rukungiri Municipality is living in fear following plans by suspected kidnappers to kidnap them for ransom.

The deputy RDC Ahimbisibwe Wilberforce Ongom while appearing on Boona FM during the Saa ya Kaazi breakfast show said  a group of 5 kidnappers have pitched camp in Rukungiri municipality targeting business operators in  the area.

Ongom says the district security committee has resolved to provide security for the business operatives and to escort them as they head home from their places of work

He lashed out at owners of hotels for not collecting adequate information about the people they provide accommodation for.

He says these are a source of insecurity

He confirmed that security operatives both covert and overt are tracking the suspected kidnappers to nip their sinister plan in the bud

Ahimbisibwe also underscored the threat of the Allied democratic forces that are wreaking havoc in eastern Democratic republic of Congo.

He asked religious leaders to beef up security at their places of worship as he refferd to a recent incident in Kasinde town just 3 kilometres from the Uganda DRC border where an explosive was detonated in a church killing 14 people and leaving 64 others injured
