Kampala Metropolitan Deputy Police spokesperson Luke Owoyesigyire has identified the suspect as Shaban Musisi resident of Kasenge village in Kyengera town council of Wakiso district, who killed both his wife Ruth Nakkazi and his rape victim Scovia Abed today.
Roadblocks have been mounted around all access roads in the precincts of the NUP offices and the main old Kira Road. No pedestrian, cyclist or vehicle is allowed to use the Old Kira Road stretch from Kamwokya to Bukoto, an area now surrounded by heavily armed police, local defence and military personnel.
Party spokesperson and Nakawa East Elect Joel Ssenyonyi said they have declared Wednesday a day of prayers and fasting to seek God’s intervention for the country that is covered by human rights abuses, extra judicial killings, and bad governance.
The stages that were temporarily closed include the Kireka police stage with 50 members, the super deal stage Kyaliwajjala with 50 members, the Kira-Kayembe stage with 40 members, and the Bweyogerere avocado stage with about 30 members.
NUP spokesman and MP Elect for Nakawa West, Joel Ssenyonyi says that profiteers from security organs are peddling the Kyagulanyi swearing hoax to scare the president into causing the release of operational funds which they would use for their own benefit.
However, although the curfew was imposed, it's not enforced in several parts of the country where the movement of people is not restricted even during curfew time. Bars are also operating freely, even though, according to presidential guidelines, such businesses are super-spreaders of the COVID-19 virus.
The first incident was reported by one Shafic Mubiru, who was driving a vehicle registration number UAJ 320S. He was attacked along the railway crossing at Kireka Trading Centre by two juveniles who were moving on motorcycles amidst a traffic gridlock, on Thursday evening.
