Kiruhura police have netted 37 year old man identified as Hebert Mugisha, a resident of Bushenyi for having been masquerading as a detective, state attorney and Uganda Human rights commission officer.
Mugisha was arrested after defrauding 160,000 uganda shillings from a one Irene Atweyambe, a resident of Mbarara who she pledged to intervene as a human rights officer to save her jailed husband.
However, during interrogations the man surprised officers that the complainant has grudges on him after using and dumped her.
Kiruhura district police headquarters is where 37 year old Mugisha has been detained on charges of extortion, fraud plus impersonating as a detective, state attorney and an officer from Uganda Human rights commission.
