Sometimes Mob Justice Is Good

In Walukuba there were many thieves and this made people sleep at 8.00p.m.So one day a meeting was called by the community members to find a way of stopping theft in the village.So in the meeting when the community was discussing one man was noting down the names of the people who were talking about the thieves and he was suspected to be one of the thieves who attack people in the village at night immediately after the meeting they broke his house and found expensive assets and yet he was not working people beat him up so he ran asking for help but the more he ran the more the number of people increased police came in to rescue but on the way he died.From that day the thieves fear to steal in Walukuba village.
