There is heavy deployment of Anti-riot police in Luweero town council ahead of the burial of a Boda boda rider killed in a procession involving the Kyadondo East Member of Parliament.  

Hakim Ssekamwa was killed on Tuesday evening during a nasty accident in a procession to escort Robert Kyagulanyi alias Bobi Wine in Bombo Town along Kampala Gulu highway. 

The legislator together with others were on their way to Kampala from Gulu where they are being tried in the magistrate’s court for among others treason, inciting violence and disobedience of lawful orders.

The deceased’s elder brother, Isma Mpiima, says the deceased knocked by a trailer. 

He sustained serious injuries and was rushed to Mulago National Referral Hospital where he breathed his last on Wednesday.

This morning, a group of People Power activists led by Sam Serunjogi and Charles Ssebyala embarked on the deceased’s burial arrangements at his ancestral home at Kasana Piida in Luweero town council. Ssekamwa is expected to be buried around 2pm today.    

However, scores of police officers led by the Officer in Charge of Kasana Police Station, Sperito Banomugisha have deployed heavily near the deceased’s home and along the Kampala-Gulu highway in Luweero town council.

Police have also summoned the organizers of the burial to provide a list of expected mourners following reports that Bobi Wine might show up at the burial. Both Serunjogi and Ssebyala have defied the summons, saying they are busy mobilizing resources for the funeral.

Banomugisha declined to comment on the matter. The Luweero District Police Commander was unavailable for comment.       

But a police officer told URN on condition of anonymity that they deployed to ensure smooth traffic flow.  Our reporter saw several mourners donning red berets.

The burial comes a day after the burial of another People Power activist who was also killed in an accident. 

Michael Kalinda aka Zigy Wyne was laid to rest at his ancestral home in Katoma- Bukari, Kashenshero Mitoma district on Wednesday.
