“It was a shower of bullets. In estimation, treatment the bullets were more than one hundred in number,’’ Sserunjogi said.

Another eyewitness said he heard the gunshots from about 500meters.

“I was in my garden and could clearly hear the bullets. I also heard dogs from the neighbors barking so loud, which meant that something wrong was going down,’’ said George Mukasa.

“Whenever he was around, we felt safe. It is unfortunate we have lost such a senior citizen.’’
