The gunmen who were reportedly dressed in replica of the Uganda People's Defence Forces-UPDF uniform and masks shot and killed the owner of a mobile money shop on Friday, a one Justine Eva Nagawa and three other people from the neighborhood, before taking off with cash estimated between seven and ten million Shillings.
