This comes after a series of threat notices dropped at homes of most crime preventer leaders threatening of bitter consequences following the unshaken spirit exhibited through standing together with police amidst all waves, challenges and for failing to be infiltrated by negative energies working day and night to weaken police structures. ‘’We shall keep guarding their homes and movements so that they don’t encounter any serious attacks from wrong elements of the public", Mwesigwa said. This came after the leader of Bodaboda 2010 and some members of his group were arraigned in the military court and sent on remand in Kigo prisons.
