The former President of Uganda Journalists Association-UJA Robert Kagolo has been shot dead.

Kampala Metropolitan Deputy Spokesperson Luke Owoyesigyire said that Kagolo was killed by a Local Defence Unit-LDU personnel identified as Rashid Mamuli. 

Mamuli was guarding the home of Kagolo’s brother at Kasengeje village in Wakiso district on Thursday at around 8:00 pm.

According to Owoyesigyire, the family of Kagolo’s brother who was reportedly kidnapped and found dead on Wednesday asked for security from the Local Defence Unit to guard the home when the family had left for burial. 

According to police preliminary findings, Rashid opened fire at Kagolo who was banging the gate asking them to open for him after suspecting that unknown people were following him.

However, the LDU personnel refused to open for him, resulting in a scuffle.   Kagolo died on the way to St Joseph Hospital in Wakiso. 

According to Owoyesigyire, a joint team of the Police and the army arrived at the scene and arrested Mamuli.

Kagolo was a News Editor with Star Fm and a presenter of the current affairs programme.
