KAMPALA Metropolitan Police (KMP) has refuted an announcement made by Kampala Lord Mayor, Hon. Erias Lukwago following the sad demise of his friend and a former City Lawyer, Mugisha Ronald.
Hon. Lukwago on Friday morning wrote on his Facebook account: “I’m saddened to learn that the spiraling spate of criminality gripping the country has claimed the life of my comrade, MUGISHA RONALD who practiced with our Law firm for some good time. He is reported to have been killed by iron bar hit men in Najeera. We shall always miss you our brother Ronald. May your soul rest in eternal peace.”
Responding to Lukwago’s statement that Mugisha could have been killed by iron bar hit men, KMP issued a statement, denouncing Kampala Lord Mayor’s claim.
“The Late Mugisha Ronald passed on today 21st June 2018 during morning hours after falling down as he embarked from a bar and drunk. He was rushed immediately to Mulago casualty ward by his wife where he later passed on. Najjera area has not registered any case of such criminality. Disregard the social media lies being peddled by the Lord Mayor to discredit the efforts by the Kampala Metropolitan Police to secure the lives of people.” #RIPMugisha
