The Uganda People’s Defence Forces (UPDF) Chief of Staff of the Lands Forces Maj. Gen Leopold Eric Kyanda has said the perpetrators killing Ugandans will not survive for long before they are netted.
“Those who want to joke with the peace should first calculate the years, the President [Yoweri Museveni] has been fighting for it. Know the effort, the focus, and plan, and then you bring the joking. Those joking with peace should stop it for their own good,” Gen Kyanda said on weekend during the burial of Joshua Nteireho Rushegyera who was gunned down together with a female friend – Merina Tumukunde Rugyenza.
Nteireho was buried at his maternal uncle’s place in Kayanga, Kazo District.
Nteireho and Tumukunde were shot dead last Thursday by unknown assailants at Nambigirwa Bridge along Kampala-Entebbe Express Highway in Katabi town council Wakiso District.
Gen Kyanda said they are in the final stages of investigating the murder case thus assuring mourners that the culprits will be arrested.
“We have not gotten enough details but what is obvious is there was no fighting initially but later that enemy looked where it was convenient for him to carry out that act and he killed him.”
The general further said that such killers have an inadequate understanding because “you can’t survive when you do such things.”
“And when you do it [killing], you have to know that you have received a sin and put it into your family; you will leave it with your children and your relatives. We shall know those people,” Gen Kyanda disclosed.
