Police driver Owuku arrested over shooting fiancée dead

Kampala Metropolitan Police is holding one of their own on allegations of killing his fiancée following a misunderstanding.

The suspect is corporal Sam Owuku, the driver of Kampala South regional police commander (RPC) Rogers Sseguya. It is alleged that Owuku stormed the residence of his fiancée identified as Sarah Nabukenya in Buddo with a gun at around 10 pm on Monday night and shot her dead. Mark Busuulwa, who was passing by also sustained injuries on the right arm. 

He reported the incident to the nearby police in Kyengera before being rushed to Mulago National Referral hospital where he is receiving treatment. Nabukenya was a teacher at Buddo preparatory school and had spent five years in a relationship with Owuku.

Luke Owoyesigyire, the deputy Kampala Metropolitan police spokesperson, says that Owuku was preparing to flee when he was arrested. He says that the suspect had also abandoned the vehicle and the gun he used to kill Nabukenya. Police recovered 13 bullet casings at the crime scene to help with the investigations. 

Primah Kwagala, a lawyer and woman rights activist, wants the government to place much emphasis on the mental health of civil servants like the police officers who work in very bad situations. She says that officers work under horrible conditions and need counselling to deal with the challenges.

These stupid charlatans self styled as Ayamu elooya stop blaming govt. for everything they imagine to be the responsibility of govt.

I am aware the govt is full of pigs but you just cant blame pigs for eating grass. This is the crass example of corruption when the so called lawyers pass exams by offering sex to examiners. How can the so called bad conditions underwhich the police are working be attributed to the murder when many of us sleeping in shaks have never killed anybody?

How did this so called woman activist guess that this was a mental issue she blames on govt rather than a marital problem of probably of woman opening her legs to any object moveable?

Any competent lawyer cant blame government without first studying the reasons and circumstances which forced Owuku to kill his fiancee if at all Kwagala knows what the word fiancee means.

"Primah Kwagala, a lawyer and woman rights activist, wants the government to place much emphasis on the mental health of civil servants like the police officers who work in very bad situations. She says that officers work under horrible conditions and need counselling to deal with the challenges."

Why do these police officers accept jobs that allows them to work in horrible conditions. There is a social video running about concerning the horrible houses these officers live in.

They are like squatting in dilapidated housing as homeless families. They have no right to go about shooting innocent people just because they accepted to live like that.

What of the horrible conditions of the prisoners they are no longer allowed to provide with a police bond or bail from 6 months to one year on remand?

Quoting kabayekka:

In other words Kabayekka, it is the absolute poverty into which Dictator M7 has subjected Ugandans to, which make some people join the armed forces. At least they can get Shs.400,000 tax-free salary per month.

Otherwise since he shot his way to our State House 36 years ago, our Bloody Dictator's lingua frank, is "Value Addition".

But, except the lousy uniform on their backs and butts; if today you asked Tibuhaburwa, what value addition has he made on the Welfare, especially housing, transport and Stations/offices of our men/women in Uniform, he would eyeball you and refers to you as an idiot.

E.g., up to 1986, all the roads/driveways inside Nsamby Police Barracks and Naguru, were tarmacked. There was even a Petrol Station at the Station.

All the Driveways and parking lots at all the Police Stations in and around Kampala (CPS, Jinja Road, Old Kampala, Kawempe and Kibuye were tarmacked. But today you go to these places, it is depressing.
