Local Councilor and 3 others Charged over Tegu murder

Charles Oigu, 34, a local councilor, Balam Nyeko, 33, a security guard, Johnson Kakuru, 24, and Moses Sekitoleko, 21, both residents of Makerere, have been charged with the murder of Emmanuel Tegu, a third-year veterinary student of Makerere University. The four were charged with murder at Law Development Centre Magistrate’s Court and remanded to Ssentema Prison in Wakiso District.

“Their actions were supported by the post-mortem report which revealed the cause of death as blunt force trauma, due to open wounds along the back, multiple cane marks on the back of the right elbow and abrasions along the abdomen and the entire back of the victim,” police spokesperson Fred Enanga said in a statement yesterday.

Relatedly, some students led by aspiring guild president Muhwezi D. Macxzzon, a second-year student of Political Science, have petitioned the Speaker of Parliament to order an investigation into alleged brutality against students by security personnel. They want Parliament to push the Minister for Internal Affairs to give an explanation.

Also, Bishop Isaiah Mbuga of Christ Heart Ministries International, the church where Tegu was a member has expressed doubt about the recent statement issued by Uganda Police, revealing that Christ’s Heart Ministries International had accepted the contribution of Uganda Law Society and Christian Lawyers Fraternity, “to take up this case with its own independent investigations team to establish the facts in the courts of law.” Tegu was beaten at Makerere University and succumbed to injuries at Mulago National Referral Hospital a week later.
