2 Killed In Kampala On Orders Of KCCA Boss


case geneva; font-size: small;”>The incident happened in the morning.

Eyewitnesses have told KCCA Physical Planning Director George Agaba ordered the shooting of civilians in broad day light.

“Agaba directed his escorts to shoot at the crowd. When the soldiers, who were dressed in civilian attire, opened fire, two people died. Others have sustained injuries,” eyewitnesses revealed.

Kampala Metropolitan spokesperson Ibin Ssenkumbi is not picking our phone calls. Agaba spent last night behind bars.

One of the shooters, who has been positively identified as Santos Komakech, was wielding a pistol and AK 47 rifle.

He is seen shooting live bullets at civilians with both weapons.

Agaba and his security officers later sped off after charged residents threatened to lynch them.

The scandal comes hardly six months when legislators criticised KCCA’s insensitive methods of pulling down alleged illegal buildings in Kampala.

Legislators recently quizzed Agaba on the criteria he uses to demolish the buildings.

The MPs claimed the operation was being conducted in a very cruel manner which had to be investigated.

Agaba explained then that KCCA was demolishing buildings built in road reserves and others without space.

The scandal will surely taint KCCA’s image and could jeopardize the operation aimed at ridding the city of poorly planned structures.
