Thief shot dead for trying to rob offertories collected at celebrity mass

A thief was reportedly shot dead in the wee hours of Thursday morning at the Rubaga Cathedral Centre as he attempted to rob offertories collected during the celebrity mass on Wednesday.

The yet to be identified thief is said to have been in the company of three others who attacked a security guard at the Cathedral while holding sticks and machetes with an aim of robbing offertories.

Kampala Metropolitan Police spokesperson Luke Owoyesigyire explained that the robbers attacked the security guard because he only uses batons and not guns. So they decided to use the opportunity to make off with the money.
