What you need to know:

  • 29 people gunned down in Kampala; eight at CPS Kampala, seven in Katwe, six in old Kampala, three in Kawempe, while five were shot in Wandegeya.
  • In Wakiso, 13 people were killed, five in Nansana, three in Kira Division, two in Entebbe, one in Wakiso, and two in Nsangi.
  • “A stray bullet does not amount to a crime. If I am targeting somebody for a justification, and the bullet hits a person who is not my target, that is not an offence,” CID spokesperson, Mr Charles Twine, CID spokesperson

An investigation by security forces into the November 18-20, 2020 riots has concluded that only 11 of those shot dead were “rioters” while 42 succumbed to “stray bullets”.
The December 5, 2020 findings, whose details we are making public for the first time today, contradict President Museveni’s November 29, 2020 assertion during a televised address that 32 of the fatalities were rioters.
