Preliminary police investigations into the break-in and murder of a security guard at the offices of the Human Rights Awareness and Promotion Forum (HRAPF) Uganda show that the attack was an inside job by the company management.

The offices of the non-governmental organisation working for non-discrimination and access to justice for marginalized groups were broken into by unknown personnel two weeks ago. The attacker's killed a duty guard and took an unknown number of documents leaving all electronics and a safe containing millions of Shillings.

Investigations into the break in are ongoing with IT experts from the forensic Unit of police analyzing the footage.  The initial footage retrieved from a CCTV camera at the premises showed two unmasked men getting into the office premises in Namirembe, Rubaga Division. The suspects are still on the run.

However, a preliminary police report says that the managers had refused police to view the entire CCTV footage. They also refused to share the footage with administrators of G4S security group which runs the company's security.

"The break-in appears to be an internal plan basing on how they were protecting the footage or else they are hiding something," police spokesperson Fred Enanga told URN.

Police has so far established that only a file containing top management minutes and two other files belonging to clients were stolen from the office of the Executive Director Andrew Jjuuko.
