Quality Supermarket guard shoots dead businessman

Police have arrested Moses Angoria a security guard attached to Quality Supermarket in Naalya on allegations of shooting dead a businessman, Arnold Ainebyona Mugisha. 

Deputy Kampala Metropolitan Police spokesperson Luke Owoyesigyire said Angoria shot Ainebyona in the mouth today Tuesday at 10:30am. Attached to Saracen Security Company, Angoria reportedly discharged the bullet at Ainebyona who had gone to the supermarket to shop alongside his other two colleagues.

The scuffle ensued when Ainebyona’s colleagues pushed a trolley after shopping and hit a car that had been parked adjacent. The security guard developed an argument with the trio.

“Ainebyona remained in the car when his colleagues went shopping. After shopping, it is alleged that one of the three released a trolley which knocked one of the cars in the parking. Then in the process of reversing, the deceased knocked at the foot of one security guard known as Babu Awaze,” Owoyesigyire said.

Police said Angoria and Awaze exchanged bitter words with Ainebyona and his two colleagues. Angoria rushed to the sentry box where he picked his SAR gun and shot the deceased in the mouth while he was on his steering in the car. 

“The colleagues rushed the deceased to Independent Hospital Ntinda where he died. CCTV cameras at quality cannot show the scene but eyewitnesses give account of events,” Owoyesigyire said. 

Police said a murder case file has been opened at Kira Division police headquarters. The scene was visited by detectives and scene of crime officers from Kira, Namugongo, and CID commanders for the relevant police stations. 

Investigators retrieved the suspected killer’s gun and arrested the two security guards. Detectives drew a sketch plan and took still photos in a bid to reconstruct the scene since it was not captured by CCTV cameras at the supermarket.

However, by the time police arrived at the scene, nearby residents had beaten Angoria and is now admitted in Mulago hospital. Detectives recorded statements from witnesses as a basis for on-going investigations. Ainebyona owns several bars including Hickory Bar in Naalya-Namugongo and was also the proprietor of Campfire in the same area. His body is currently at City mortuary.

I have always asked myself why whenever there’s a slight collision of vehicles people have to argue!

Why don’t we behave in a civilised way, please where applicable one accepts liability without heated exchanges. We need to think about accidents differently.

Even where an accident happens out of a drivers recklessness, mob justice isn’t and shouldn’t be the solution. The public need more education. It’s as if these properties are more valuable than lives!

Then comes the impunity of the twariles, so arrogant that for them everything is about being in power! They don’t have what it takes to lead our society, therefore Ugandans shouldn’t follow what they do. In all situations be civil.

Don't you already know that most Ugandan men love their cars more than they love their wives, marriageable bishops included ?

What a tragedy! And this is one of the problems of the gun culture that we have blindly adopted.

On the streets, on speeding pickup trucks,etc.; everywhere you turn there are guns being brandished and wielded.

In other words, better security is defined by more guns (weaponry). And better is defined by the terror damage and/or massacre the gun can inflict.

What was Ainebyona deadly crime, which he committed to deserve being shot in the mouth? It is bewildering.

Bewildering because, it is the same Private Security Companies, which the government is advising and referring Ugandans to, for their personal and or family security.

Besides, having abdicated from exercising social justice and security responsibility and only fighting for himself; we have a president who ascended to power thru the gun, therefore all the problems are dealt with thru the gun.

Arrogance, impunity have led us to these uncalled for deaths. Akena was arrogantly shot dead and now Arnold Aine was shot dead due to his and colleagues arrogance.

The country Uganda is angry and wishing for change because of the impunity and arrogance of these few cattle herders in power today who think they own Uganda and everything therein. If they don't sit down, reflect and reform we are yet to see more of such unnecessary deaths. ebqq6

Why should such a shooting come as a surprise?

Today, an arrogant Ainebyona was shot in the mouth. A certain time in the past, an arrogant Kanyamunyu shot my friend Akena in the stomach. While Kanyamunyu is free, Angoria who already received a beating will be charged quickly and rushed to prison probably for life.

Uganda needs a serious rewinding job. A lot has gone wrong and so much will continue to go wrong.

When you begin to hear sentiments linking such unnecessary deaths to ethnicity, a genocidal alarm is being sounded and we have to build scenarios thathe closely reflect these sentiments.

What I am sure of is that arrogance is an innate character of some Ugandans, and this is a difficult thing to undo. The only salvage is in the intelligence to control what one says to others. This intelligence is packaged in a virtue called humility.
