VIDEO: NTV Uganda Journalist Narrowly Survives Death after Thugs Attacked Him, Smashed His Car at Night

NTV Uganda reporter Patrick Ssenyondo has survived being harmed by thugs who attacked him on June 11 night, smashing his car and taking off with his valuables. 

Senyondo’s was attacked after Ku-mbuzi along Gayaza road on his way from his workplace at the Kampala Serena Hotel.

That as Ssenyondo concentrated on the ‘about-to-fall’ motorcyclist (consequently braking), this rider’s colleague swung into action, broke the co-driver window and grabbed a laptop bag that belonged to the journalist.

“I thank God I survived an attack on my way home from work yesterday. Two motorcycles; one on the driver’s side and another on the co-driver’s side. One carrying another person rode past my car and some how pretended like he lost balance trying to fall. I had to brake a bit. Immediately, the other motorcycle on the co-driver’s side smashed the glass on the co-driver’s side,” Ssenyondo’s colleague Patrick Mukasa quoted the journalist as saying.

“I had a laptop bag on the front seat and these attackers ran with it. Things happened so quickly. By the time I regained from the shock to drive off, guys had disappeared already.”
