Our efforts to speak to the bereaved woman MP turned futile as she showed no sign of talking to press. A family source says they want ‘privacy at the moment’ as they are still grief stricken by the events that led to the death of their child.

Eye witness accounts

Ronald Amanya, a student told media that he saw someone stab a colleague with a broken bottle before he (victim) started bleeding profusely from the neck.

“This boy was in the NUP camp but he kept exchanging words with some people from the FDC camp. Someone emerged from the crowd and stabbed him with a broken bottle in the neck and disappeared into the crowd,” he said.

The victim who was bleeding profusely is said to have run to Nsibirwa hall bathrooms to clean the blood but it was too late. Our reporter accessed the Nsibirwa hall washrooms and detected scenes of blood similar to a slaughterhouse. It is said Samaritans rushed to tie a cloth round the neck of the deceased student to limit blood flow and tried to rush him to the University Hospital for first aid. It was however very late and the student was pronounced dead on arrival.

Police last night arrested Kassanda South Member of Parliament Hon. Kabuye Frank to aid their investigations.
