The Katikiro of Buganda, Charles Peter Mayiga, paid a visit to the residence of the late Ndiga Clan leader, Daniel Bbosa, to offer condolences on behalf of the entire Kingdom.

Katikkiro Mayiga arrived at Bbosa’s home in Lungujja Parish, Rubaga division, Kampala, on Tuesday afternoon, where he encountered family members in mourning following the tragic assassination of Omutaka Daniel Bbosa on Sunday evening near his residence.

He extended heartfelt sympathies to the grieving family and the Ndiga clan leaders, stressing the kingdom’s urgent need for answers from security authorities regarding the motive behind this atrocious crime.

Mayiga counseled the family and clan leaders to adhere to cultural traditions in selecting Bbosa’s successor, while cautioning against accusations and rumors that could sow discord within the clan.

Police revealed the identities of two out of three assailants allegedly involved in Bbosa’s murder on Monday. Both suspects hailed from the same clan. According to Fred Enanga, the Police Spokesperson, the suspects are Enoch Sserunkuuma, a resident of Lungujja who was lynched on the spot, and Noah Luggya, who survived the attack and is currently receiving treatment at Mulago National Referral Hospital. The whereabouts of the third suspect remain unknown, while authorities recovered the gun and motorcycle, the latter of which had a fake number plate.

Meanwhile, the burial of the late Bbossa might be postponed as it requires the Ndiga clan executive leadership to designate a successor before proceeding with the burial rites.
