Assailants shoot Nakaseke businessman dead

Police in Nakaseke is actively investigating an incident that resulted into the murder of businessman, John Luwaga, a resident of Posta Zone, who was tragically murdered on Sunday. The police have identified him as the victim in this incident. Additionally, the assailants allegedly stole his car, prompting an ongoing investigation into the motive behind the murder, according to Savana Region Police spokesperson Sam Twineamazima.

Ronald Kazibwe, LC1 of Posta Zone, expressed his shock at the shooting, stating that Luwaga had never revealed any threats to his life. Kazibwe believes that the crime occurred unnoticed during the night due to the loud music from nearby disco halls. He suspects that the perpetrators may have followed Luwaga and potentially kidnapped him before the shooting. The community eagerly awaits the official police report for more details.

Margaret Wanyana, Luwaga’s widow, shared her account of the events. Luwaga returned home around 8:00 PM on Saturday and informed her that he needed to visit Semuto police station to check on the detained LC1 chairperson. He instructed her not to lock the house as he would return after his visit. However, when he failed to contact her by 11:00 PM, she decided to lock the door. Wanyana woke up in the morning feeling weak and attempted to contact a relative where she suspected her husband might have spent the night. Unfortunately, before she received a response, she received a call informing her of her husband’s death in Posta Zone.


Wanyana revealed that her husband had intended to quit his involvement in land dealings due to untrustworthy individuals who were complicating his life. She regretted not discussing the specific threats he had been facing before his untimely demise.
