Police in Uganda yesterday opened fire and shot and killed atleast one and injured many other People Power activists coming from the burial of one of their colleague -Ritah Nabukenya, 28- who was reportedly knocked by a police patrol vehicle.
Ritah, commonly known as Priya in People Power circles was travelling on a boda boda on her way to attend a consultative meeting by their leader, Robert Kyagulanyi alias Bobi Wine in Ndeeba when she met her demise.
What a country! What a time! This evening as we returned from the burial of Ritah Nabukenya who was murdered by police yesterday, police & LDU shot at the crowd of people who were waving at me. Dan Kyeyune died on spot, others sustained severe injuries. It is totally dark here pic.twitter.com/0q63blUXkU

The latest clash which has claimed one life and left many injured has now directed criticism towards Bobi Wine who Ugandan citizens now say is luring the youth to their deaths with false hope.
“Just defeat the man with diplomacy it’s that simple. Stop misleading the youth into following you (Bobi) on streets yet you know what the police is capable of unless you’re saying that’s like a sacrifice for you,” one resident said.
“Do you(Bobi) sometimes sit down and look at the kind of tears you have brought to your brothers and sisters? Seducing them to the death line for your pragmatic agenda that values the lives of the dead flock instead of thinking aloud but that’s who you are nothing but monster leader.” Clinton wrote on twitter.
“Just a mid night thought: I don’t really think
feels bad when he mislead people into lawlessness leading to deaths. I think he’s always super happy and excited whenever someone looses their life bse it gives him something to keep him relevant. RIP Dan and Rita.“
I'm not saying bobiwine is a hulligan.. I just feel like we are losing so many lives just because of one person who is probably seeking change in the wrong way. Rip to this man these pictures are sickening ?
