Two people have been shot dead along the Kampala-Entebbe Express highway. 

Police had initially indicated that killed woman was Florence Maya Kamikazi, a Rwandan national but it has since revised the name and nationality to Merina Tumukunde, a Ugandan married to Mark Rugyenza. According to police, Tumukunde was found in a sitting position in her car with a single bullet wound on her head. 

She was shot dead alongside her bodyguard Joshua Nteyireho Ruhegyera at around 10:30 pm on Thursday near Nambigirwa bridge, towards Mpala, Katabi Town Council. According to an eyewitness in Mpala Isma Kimera, the deceased were waylaid by two unidentified men. 

The deceased were travelling in a black Prado registration number UAW 534B heading to Entebbe and an AK-47 rifle believed to have been used to kill the two was found at the scene.

According to police, the rifle is their own and was assigned to police constable Davis Taremwa, who was with the duo at Millenium hotel in Zana for a car sale transaction hours before they got shot. Taremwa has since been arrested to assist with the investigations.

KAREMIRE, please wake up! It is time for reckoning!

We can blame Rwanda for all our woes, the fact is that "you guys" have had a field day, killing and looting! Blaming Rwanda for the murderous rampage will not fly, Ugandans are not stupid.

When the "real time" comes, Ugandans know the difference between you and them.

Fellow Ugandans, let's wake up! Who are the killers? Is it Rwanda, for real?

We are so fragmented, we need a unifying factor, "Uganda is under invasion", the "believable" culprit is Rwanda, never mind that we need to prepare for the coming elections! Time will Tell.

Our security professionals, need to show minimum decency!

It so incongruent to be laughing at a murder scene! Look at how many are all smiles like they were at a party!

You cant make this stuff up. The dead woman was a Rwandese kamikaze before she was Rwandese.

Then she was not kamiaze. The dude killed with her was the body guard, then travel companion, then as it emerged that he is highhigh husler who some times basks with members of the first family, and now the police refers to him in third john terms.6a

The clear display of the police incompetence just makes this look like some form of feud, conspiracy, murder, sex, betrayal and double stretching all the qay from wakali-wood, entebbe, mbarara, bushenyi to the land of a thousand hills and all points invetween.

Wow! At least this appears that the mighty and powerful are bumping each other for whatever reason.dm

I agree that Ugandans are not stupid. I also agree that Ug's know the difference between Ug's & non-Ugs. The reverse is also true, the non-Ug's know the difference between themselves and the "non-themselves".

Further, I am aware that: (a) although I have suffered before, that does not give me "Acquired Immunity" against more of that in the future.

(b) Please be reminded that it works both ways. (c) Please also be reminded that a Ug recently killed another Ug [purportedly] because "he was a Munyankole" even when the victim was so "bagandanized" to the extent he did not know that he was a Munyankole. It is complicated, isn't it.

My advice to you is this: DO NOT OPEN THAT CANNED WORM.

That " .... You and them..." above can be tricky. As such, I dare to say that I would not even care how to "know the difference" between a Ugandan-Mugandan and a Bugandanized-Munyarwanda or a Ugandan-Acholi and a SS-Anyanya-Acholi for that matter, [etc; examples only].

It does not matter to me at all. They can be Ugandans, so long as they feel so.

I accept your "inside knowledge" of the situation. Actually, I wonder if the rest of other Ugandan ethnic groups would be able to "tell apart" those two ethnic groups.

I admit can't, nor can I a Muganda Vs a Mugandanized one. Anyway, that deficiency of mine doesn't matter to me at all.
