The un-identified man was lynched after he tried to grab a bag from a student walking back to her hostel in Katanga.
“We are tired of these thieves, they are always targeting us as we walk along these streets, said Evelyn Nantume a resident at one of the hostels in Katanga.
The residents of Katanga and the students who reside in the near by hostels all ganged up in harmony to bring down the suspected thief. They beat him up so hard he could barely move his body. The scene was then more dramatized by the motor cyclists who rode over his seemingly lifeless body.
The man was later on saved by the police which arrived to find him at near death, He was then rushed to Mulango hospital in the police car to receive treatment.
