Fresh Clashes Feared in Kasese as UPDF Shoots Dead Kirumiramutima Fighter,
There are growing fears of re-newed fighting in Kasese district, following the shooting of a member of the Kirumiramutima, an armed group loyal to the King of Rwenzururu Charlese Wesley Mumbere.
The UPDF 2ndDivision spokesperson Maj. Peter Mugisa confirmed the killing of Matayo Bwanzire, who was shot dead early today morning by army officers. Meanwhile, two weeks back, the army spokesperson says Mzee Arthur Mbarage, an elder and Councilor of Bwisumbo Sub County was ambushed and stubbed to near death by unknown assailants.
Maj Mugisa says army officers from the KasangaliDetach laid Bwanzire at his house today and when he was ordered to come out of the house, he instead jumped through the window with two knives and grabbed one Private Wycliffe Amanya and stubbed him on the shoulder and head, before he was eventually shot dead.
