Kasese lay reader shot dead by UPDF soldier

A lay reader at Kogere archdeaconry in South Rwenzori Diocese in Kasese district has been shot dead by a Uganda People's Defence Force soldier. Benon Nsimenta was allegedly shot dead today at 6 am at Karungibate in Hima town council.

Godfrey Dembe, the Karusandara sub-county district councillor says that the deceased was shot dead by an unidentified soldier who was enforcing curfew guidelines which runs every day from 7 pm to 6.30 am. According to Dembe, Nsimenta who was riding a motorcycle was taking his wife to the garden in Karusandara sub-county when he was shot dead.

Nsimenta’s wife is admitted at Hima health centre III. Tsongo Masumbuku, the UPDF 222 Mountain Brigade spokesperson says that they are investigating the matter.

Nsimenta becomes the eighth victim to lose his life at the hands of security agencies implementing COVID-19 guidelines over the last 95 days. All the victims were either shot dead or tortured to death by soldiers, police officers or Local Defense Unit officers.

What is "RAY LEADER"? Did the author mean to say "LAY READER"?

Quoting Japman:

I guess so, otherwise we should assume that M7 is NRM's sole candidate for the on-coming presidential erections. [Is there a Ladies in such contest?] UPE staff also!!

It's a disgrace and a shame the armed forces of
a sovereign country to murder innocent civilians in
cold blood.

Whoever did murder Mr. Musimento must be prosecuted in courts of law.

If this is notnot done done the whole country must start demonstrating the Black American way after a Policeman murdered a black man.

UGANDAN LIVES SHOULD MATTER!

Stop murdering Ugandans in the name of enforcing government plans or programs, like in this case the Covid19 related curfew.

The answer is not that they should stop but that UGANDANS SHOULD STOP THEM.

Mob courage [as Mr. Wine is relying on] will not attain that objective. Dear Mr. Wine, please rebottle yourself with a better idea. Option that you are coy about is inevitable.
