There is heavy deployment of Anti-riot police
in Luweero town council ahead of the burial of a Boda boda rider killed in a procession involving the Kyadondo East Member of Parliament.
Hakim Ssekamwa was killed on Tuesday evening
during a nasty accident in a procession to escort Robert Kyagulanyi alias Bobi Wine in Bombo Town
along Kampala Gulu highway.
The legislator together with others were on their way to Kampala from Gulu where they are being tried in the magistrate’s court for
among others treason, inciting violence and
disobedience of lawful orders.
The deceased’s elder brother, Isma Mpiima, says the deceased knocked by a trailer.
He sustained serious injuries
and was rushed to Mulago National Referral Hospital where he breathed his last

This morning, a group of People Power activists led by Sam Serunjogi and Charles Ssebyala embarked on the
deceased’s burial arrangements at his ancestral home at Kasana Piida in Luweero
town council. Ssekamwa is expected to be buried around 2pm today.
However, scores of police officers led by the Officer in Charge of Kasana Police Station, Sperito
Banomugisha have deployed heavily near the deceased’s home and along the
Kampala-Gulu highway in Luweero town council.
Police have also summoned the organizers of the
burial to provide a list of expected mourners following reports that Bobi Wine
might show up at the burial. Both Serunjogi and Ssebyala have defied the
summons, saying they are busy mobilizing resources for the funeral.

The Luweero District Police Commander was unavailable for comment.
But a police officer told URN on condition of anonymity that
they deployed to ensure smooth traffic flow.
