Uganda: Naked Men Chase Thief

Kampala — TWO unidentified men recently amused residents in Masese, Jinja, when they chased a thief while wearing only their underwear.

That night, while they were asleep, a thief opened their window and started pulling out the clothes that were hanging on a wire in their one roomed house.

On realising that their clothes were being stolen, the pair quickly opened the door and ran after the thief while calling out for the residents to intercept the thief.

However, the residents instead arrested the two naked men and wanted to lynch them thinking that they were the thieves.

When the two men explained what had happened, the residents laughed and warned them not to run naked again.
