Police officials say they are investigating a case of suicide.

However, Sejusa said in a statement seen by Chimpreports on Sunday that “What is certain is that he (Mutungi) was under intense psychological torture since I left the country. And he did air out his frustrations.”

“No one knows how he ended up there. This is a man who was a graduate of American University in Cairo Egypt. In birth, he comes right after me. He was 56 years old having been born on 14.11.1957. I am told the police are trying to establish cause of death. Whatever the outcome, the abusive nature of the Museveni government is squarely to blame,” said Sejusa.

It remains unclear why Sejusa suspects that government had a hand in his brother’s death.

Family members say Mutungi could have taken his life by throwing himself in a pond.

He had earlier tried to use a rope to hang himself in vain.

“I am strong and firm. His death only gives me more resolve to ensure that we struggle to ensure our people live and die in dignity they deserve,” said Sejusa in a statement.

“That never again shall the state directly or indirectly be complicit in the killing of its citizens. That never again should Ugandans fail to return home to bid farewell to their departed ones. To this struggle I commit myself.”

Observers are likely to argue that Sejusa could be politicizing his brother’s death to win public sympathy for his ‘struggle.’

Sejusa fled Uganda in April before announcing plans to topple President Yoweri Museveni, whom he accuses of grooming Brig Muhoozi Keinerugaba to take over presidency in the near future.

Government says Sejusa is a deserter facing treason and other criminal charges.

Mutungi is expected to be laid to rest today.
