Rwenzururu royal guard shot dead


A royal guard of Rwenzururu Kingdom has been shot and killed in Kasese town.

A graphic image shared by Uganda Radio Network shows the guard dressed in casual wear lying dead in the middle of the road.

He was gunned down near a Market.

Rwenzururu Kingdom spokesperson Joshua Baluku identified the dead royal guard as Isaac Bwambale Mugoye.

Mugoye becomes the fifth royal guard to be shot and killed in a space of weeks.

Mid-March this year, police shot and killed four royal guards in Kasenyi trading centre in Buhuhira Sub County.

IGP Kale Kayihura linked the kingdom to a militia that launched Kasese attacks leading to the death of six people.

Kayihura alleged in a statement that those killed were members of a militia group linked to Obusinga bwa Rwenzururu cultural institution, calling themselves “Kirumiramutima” (strong-hearted).

Baluku dismissed the claim saying the four royal guards were shot dead from their homes.

Rwenzururu Kingdom demanded that Kayihura retracts the statement.
