The City Mortuary at Mulago National Referral hospital in Kampala has so far received 19 bodies resulting from Wednesday’s protests. The protests erupted after the National Unity Platform presidential candidate, Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine got arrested in Luuka district in eastern Uganda. 

According to Dr Moses Byaruhanga, the police chief pathologist, 15 bodies were men while one was female. Byaruhanga adds that they are expecting more bodies since many people could have been injured during the protests. Our reporter who was at the mortuary saw another three bodies being taken in today.

"We received 16 bodies; 15 male one female and we have finished examining them. We started at 7 am and at 9 am we’d finished because we had 3 teams and in each team - we had 4 people in each team. Yes, we have successfully finished our work, now we’re in the process of giving the body to relatives such that they take them for decent burial," said Museveni. 

According to Dr Byaruhanga, the 16 died as a result of gunshots, suffocation from tear gas while others were killed in hit and run accidents.

Maureen Nakazibwe a resident of Nansana who was at the mortuary says that her husband Peter Kintu was shot dead by Local Defense Unit (LDU) personnel. Nasser Kongora says that his 26-year-old brother was shot dead in Kisenyi while hiding in a maize store. Police has since beefed up security at the City Mortuary as the relatives collect the bodies.

A senior police officer at Kampala Central Police Station command centre identified some of the dead as Daniel Nahika who was killed on Kampala road, Mutaasa at Wandegeya, Hussein Mwebesa killed at Nasser road and another person only identified as Amate.

Three police constables were also injured in the protests. They include Ojok Boniface, Walter Okello and Nakivubo police post commander Consulate Kasule. Kasule was attacked and clobbered near Total building while she was removing tyres placed in the middle of the road.

Police vehicles UP 4833, UP 5622, UP 5564 and UP 7074 were also damaged in yesterday's scuffle. Dr Rosemary Byanyima, the deputy executive director Mulago hospital says that 46 people have been admitted at the casualty ward nursing injuries sustained in the protests. 

 
According to Byanyima, four people died last night as a result of injuries. She also cautioned people against taking the injured to nearby clinics. Regime apologists have justified the killings, saying they were hooligans who were destroying people's property and attacking security enforcement officers.

Quoting Wainanchi:
I urge government security agencies of fraud by pretending that dead people were killed by security operatives.

This is well known and already tested trick done in the past and well informed readers may remember similar cases in the past .say Syria, Iraq,Bosnia etc.

I doubt that security would kill anyone except if wild demonstrators used forearms to kill security I strongly believe that if those people were really killed that they must have use firearms and were killed in fighting.

NUP is known at calling it's activists to arms.Using arms is dangerous and if they tried it ,we see results.

Just vomit your rubbish and you will eat it back

Wainanchi , yes I can educate you.
Until you pointed it out , everybody thought that it was Uganda security operatives that carried and used guns since the demonstrations broke out.

Thanks to your insight , we must consider the possibility that its NUP people who besieged cities and did all the shooting.

How about that ---huh ?

I was called a lot names when I said that it is stupid for an African to join that Black Lives Matter nonsense.

Here we are now with an African dictator carrying out a massacre and braging about it.

What have those Black Lives Matter bastards in USA and Europe done about this .

Most of them do not even know where Uganda is on the damn map.

They want us to join them to hate Trump but will stay mum when our bloody dictator and his family is killing our people

STOP THE STEAL !!!

Guys.I know some of you hate good and noble man YKM but let's be honest.

What would happen to Uganda if there was no YKM ,NRM and good patriots of Uganda to keep an eye on its safety and security ?

We have seen daily how many crooks have been robbing Uganda,how many killers killed innocent people and went unpunished.

And now you are trying to justify mobsters and gangsters who are using all means possible to make Uganda unstable and unsecure

For some of you who are calling my claims idiotic I advise that they investigate and find cases I am referring to and not to give unfounded justifications that such things as fabricating evidence is not possible.

Masters of disguise are at work in Uganda and they are making and fabricating things to paint NRM black and guilty if things it had never done but masters in disguise are at work Sorry lads!!

So Museveni sends his police dogs to harras and terrorize citizens trying to listen to candidates and when they react in anger we are supposed to blame them and praise Museveni? That is the most stupid observation I ever heard.

Wooden K, greed, but,

Europeans will NEVER blame Museveni not help Ugandans as long as they maintain the tribalistic system that goes against European principle!

European racist political parties had to change policies, if they are to exist & not be in prison!

D. Trump would never have lost if he had disassociated himself with white extremists!

A London English Football official had to stand down because of his skin colour comment!

Once Ugandans bring down the tribalistic system, they won't be alone with Museveni any more!

The question is, do Ugandans want help from developed world?

I will stop giving any more of my comments or observations

My fears that violence was orchestrated from outside and arms brought in are obviously correct so all is in hands now of the current president of Uganda and Ugandan security.

Uganda must ensure security and stability for all and bring all suspects to be responsible for their actions.Those using forearms and killing innocent citizens must be executed by firing squads and sentenced by Court Martial as rebels trying to make armed resistance

No mercy for killers and terrorists.Uganda fight back NOW!! Forward president Yoweri Kaguta Museveni.!! Forward National Resistance Movement !!

Forward Uganda People's Defense Force Forward Uganda Police,Local Defense Units and all security agencies and personnel safeguarding Uganda..Down with terrorists and killers trying to bring instability to Uganda They must be CRASHED!!!
