The Uganda Police Force have in a postmortem report claimed that the deceased Kayunga LCV Chairperson Ffeffeka Sserubogo was not murdered as widely alleged but rather he committed suicide. The report has raised eyebrows amongst the mourners who say there is no way their leader could end his own life especially when he had started implementing his manifesto.
The CID spokesperson Charles Twine says police made its postmortem examination in the presence of the family doctor of the deceased.
“The postmortem done by three senior surgeons and one independent doctor provided by the family of the late Ffefeka Sserubogo in the presence of the brother of the deceased and the LC 5 vice chairman indicated that the late Sserubogo committed suicide,” Twine said in a statement.
“The postmortem indicated he was killed by hapoxia which is a deficiency of oxygen in the body tissues. It is what kills all those who commit suicide,” he added.
Locals however demand questions about how the disabled Sserubogo ably managed to clime at the helm of the tree and ended his life. “How did he climb up yet he has been limping? How come there are marks of mud on the tree which he allegedly climbed yet his feet were clean?,” one doubtful resident revealed to this reporter. “Sserubogo was lively and ambitious. We believe his murder is linked to his aggressive actions against land grabbers. The prime suspects should be the Kalangwas,” another local retorts.
The deceased will this afternoon be laid to rest amidst tight deployment from UPDF and police who anticipate chaos from the angered mourners.
