Maj Gen Leopold Kyanda the Chief of Staff Land Forces has noted that the killers of Joshua Nteyireho Ruhegyera have for some time been trying to disturb “our peace” adding that they have been trying so much with no response so they have now resorted to touching where it hurts.
In a joking manner, Gen. Kyanda said that the assassins need to stop the ill motives for their own good before the tables turn.
“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,” he said.
He further added that they will fully understand them, know what they are after and then engage them because they have for so long murdered innocent Ugandans.
“We shall fully understand them, know what they are after; they have been killing people, they have been trying to disturb our peace but they are joking. You see [President] Museveni brought peace; he didn’t start yesterday, he sacrificed for a long time.”
Gen. Kyanda made statements on Sunday during Nteyireho’s burial in Kayanga, Kazo District.
Joshua Nteyireho and Merina Tumukunde were last week shot dead at Nambigirwa Bridge on the Entebbe Express high way in what was first identified by Police as a suicide murder but they have now confirmed that the murder had other people involved and has arrested on of it’s own officers whose gun was found at the murder scene,
Gen Kyanda said the way Nteyireho died is disturbing but consoled the mourners saying that 70% of the investigations had been complete and very soon the killers will be paraded for sentence.
He also revealed that the Person who killed Joshua first confused him by befriending him (Nteyireho) and he trusted that person before he killed him adding that the killers will be deeply investigated to know their associates and what they after.
“Someone got to him and confused him and became friendly to him. He [Nteyireho] appeared to have trusted that person. They went together,” Gen. Kyanda said.
Gen Kyanda noted that Nteireho was hard working young man during his time at the Civil Aviation Authority and when he started his private business.
Other Mourners included Mr. Sedrack Nzeire (President Museveni’s young brother ) who said that their nephew and friend Nteireho was a very ambitious, hardworking and smart guy revealing at the time of his death he was operating a money lending business.
