MUKONO – Police have dismissed reports that the Resident District Commissioner of Mukono District Mr Fred Bamwine wore a police uniform and commanded police officers while blocking Robert Kyagulanyi’s supporters on Monday.
There have been photographs circulating in social media alleging that Mr Bamwine wore a police uniform and commanded police officers during the incident that claimed one person.
But according to Kampala Metropolitan Police spokesman Patrick Onyango, the photograph that is circulating is that of the Officer in Charge of Mbalala Police Station ASP Asiimwe.
“The picture is not of Mr Fred Bamwine. We would also put the fact right that in yesterday’s operation, no life was lost as a result of live bullets, rubber bullets, or teargas.
One person, Jonathan Ssempala, died at Kawolo Hospital as a result of a road accident at Mayangayanga along Nagoje Road,” he said.
“The other incident we had in the area was of a car that overturned and injured five people. Four were transferred to Mulago Referral Hospital for treatment while one,
Vincent Ssempijja, 18, is still admitted at Kawolo Hospital.
The transfer people are Moses Ssentongo, 24, Steven Ssebuliba, 30, Robert Kigozi, 22, and Medi Ssebadeki. All are residents of Nakifuma, Mukono District.
All these victims were as a result of road accidents,” he added.
