The candidates are Muhammad Nsubuga who is contesting as a divisional councillor to represent Makerere IlI parish at Kawempe Division and Jamirah Namwanje contesting for the Councillor in Bwaise II. They were arrested in Kalangala district in December last year on the campaign trail with former NUP Presidential candidate Robert Kyagulanyi.
Luke Owoyesigyire, the Kampala Metropolitan Deputy Police Spokesman, says that the three policemen who were on patrol found people operating normally past curfew hours and ordered them to close their businesses to go home. According to Owoyesigyire, when they resisted, Gerald Agaba opened fire killing Nsejje instantly. He adds that when the SPCs tried to disarm Agaba, he shot them too.
