Entebbe: The Police in Entebbe are investigating suspected arson at Post Bank Entebbe, which was gutted by fire on Wednesday night June 19, 2019.
Fire was reported at Entebbe Post Bank branch by social media vigilantes at around 8:00Pm and shortly thereafter a Police fire brigade rushed to the scene and saved the situation.However, eyewitnesses reveal that the police found a very difficult time to access the Banking hall such that they could put out the fire simply because the person who keeps the keys was very far away. The police had to break into the facility situated on Trust building, plot 20 Airport Road, but by then, a lot of property worth millions of shillings had already been destroyed by the fire. However, despite the massive damage caused by fire to property like computers, customers’ documents, moneys, etc, Post Bank has not issued a statement about what caused the fire and details of what was burnt remain scanty.

So Fire-fighters from Uganda police force, the UPDF and the Civil Aviation Authority helped to save the Bank from further destruction but they are now handling several leads in the investigation to establish whether there was any foul play or not.
