Kagadi Police are holding a senior four student of Public SS Mabaale in Mabaale town council Kagadi district on suspicion of torching a dormitory at his school.
The boy’s dormitory went up in flames around 8 pm on Tuesday last week as students were attending preps.
The fire reduced student property including mattresses, books, jerry cans, clothes, and money among others to ashes.
Now, the Kagadi District Police Commander, Moses Muzima Kiconco, says that they picked up a student suspected to have started the fire from his hideout in Kyakabadiima sub-county over the weekend.
Muzima says that the suspect has since confessed that he used petrol worth Shillings 3000 to burn the school after being punished for stealing a mobile phone from his colleague. He notes that the suspect is currently locked up at Kagadi central police station and that he will be taken to court to answer charges of arson.
