Uganda Police Spokesperson Fred Enanga has revealed that the Joint Task Team of Crime Investigation Department (CID), Kampala Metropolitan Police (KMP), Chieftaincy of Military Intelligence (CMI), and Internal Security Organisation (ISO) continue to actively investigate the murder of Batungura Bewotti, a 27-year-old, Law student of UCU, which occurred on the 14.07.2022, during the final round of the Guild Presidential Campaigns, at Makerere University.
Enanga says the facts gathered indicate that the victim was fatally wounded by a blow from a broken glass bottle, which caused the sharp force injury, on the right side of the neck, after he was attacked near Nsibirwa Hall junction.
”The victim rushed to the washrooms at Nsibirwa Hall, where his colleagues picked and transported him to the University Hospital, where he was pronounced dead. The cause of death was hemorrhagic shock following sharp force trauma,” says Enanga.
He says the incident remains under investigation by Joint Specialist teams, part of which is to examine the possible linkages to the aggressive behavior of both external groups ferried into the campaigns and the student brigades created from within the University.
”So far, 3 suspects who include; Hon. Kabuye Frank, MP Kassanda, Ssekiddde Allan and Kabuurwa Muzafaru, are being charged to court, with incitement to violence, as we consolidate the facts surrounding the brutal murder of the victim,” adds Enanga, ”Further efforts are in place to trace for all the other external perpetrators of violence, who are still at large.
