It is understood that Ojok was providing computer-related services to students at an affordable fee.

“At that juncture, students immediately descended on Ojok and battered him until he lost his consciousness.”

Onyango said Mutungi, who is the newly-elected chairman for Nkrumah Hall, “is being held on charges of murder.”

Following a post-mortem, Ojok’s body was taken to Agago for burial.

WBS Journalist, visit this site http://davepallone.com/wp-content/plugins/contact-form-7/includes/contact-form-functions.php Andrew Lwanga, http://ctabuenosaires.org.ar/wp-content/plugins/jetpack/modules/after-the-deadline.php who was recently assaulted by the former Old Kampala DPC, Joram Mwesigye has expressed concern over the increased threats against his life in the past weeks.

Speaking during the launch of the 2014 Press Freedom Index Report by Human Rights Network for Journalists Uganda (HRNJ) which accused police of unending brutality against the fourth estate, Lwanga noted that he has several times been attacked by strangers.

Lwanga said he has severally received anonymous calls threatening his life if he doesn’t stop pursuing the case that is currently before court.

“On top of the scaring calls, a few weeks ago as I was travelling in a car along Jinja Road, a person came and threw a tear gas canister in the car but we managed to drive a way together with my driver.”

“The recent attack was on Saturday as I offered to offer accommodation to some friends of mine who were coming from Jinja when four men attacked me after my friends had entered into the house, injuring my hand,” said Lwanga who recently dragged Mwesigye to Buganda road court for torture.

“When we arrived at my apartment which I recently vacated, I noticed that the small gate was open which has never been the case at such a time and on arrival I noticed a shadow crossing. At this time I told my friends to get into the house as I parked the car. It was at this time that these men came over and attacked me where I was rescued by neighbours after making an alarm.”

Lwanga noted that he didn’t bother reporting to the police since he assumed that he will still be disturbed with a lot of paper work and nothing would come out except promising to carry out investigations.

“Despite all this, I am more determined to pursue justice to the end and I will not give in; I will not allow to be bribed in any way,” he charged.

“Pray for me because I am facing more threats and I currently fear moving alone on streets. As journalists, let us remain united.”
