About the Deceased:
“Police has said the deceased is called Yozefu Mugoye, a resident of Kihyo, Kitswamba sub-county and that he was shot when he was attempting to grab a gun from security operatives that were hunting for a one Juma Miliki who is suspected to be a member of a gang that killed a policeman in Kidodo recently. The deputy police spokesperson Polly Namaye told URN reporter that Juma Miliki is on a police wanted list who knows the whereabouts of the gun stolen from the Kidodo incident. Namaye added that the deceased was found with a package of black stones and small sticks tied on the legs suggesting defensive charms plus Obusinga Royal Guards identity cards. She added that the deceased died on his way to Kilembe hospital due to over bleeding. But in a press briefing this afternoon at Buhikira Royal Palace, Omusinga wondered how a royal guard who had just been sent to buy food in the market ended up being shot in unclear circumstance. The King said that some recently sacked kingdom officials are conniving with yet-to-be identified groups of people to target and kill other kingdom workers. Mumbere mentioned Benon Mahighura, Sualit Kule, Yosufu Kiduha, Joshua Mwami and Noah Nzaghale with UPDF that was sacked lance corporal Edmon Baluku among those giving security officials what he termed wrong information. “Time is now to take care all Banya-Rwenzururu, because they want to kill us all, someone unarmed but you be killed” King said.
He added that the royal guard was shot in his way to buy food from the market after being given 200000 shillings” (Umbrella For Journalists In Kasese, 31.03.2016).
