Lord Mayor Erias Lukwago has condemned the attack on the councillor.

Police have said they are tracing for possible clues. The body of the deceased has been conveyed to Mulago city mortuary pending postmortem report.

Kakooza has been found dumped at Centenary Park in the City Center at about 7.00 am in the morning.

The councilor has been an NRM member representing the People in Kampala Central Division.

He was elected LCIII councillor with 1,503 votes defeating NUP’s Francisco Bwambale who garnered 493 votes.

He is said to have fallen out with local criminal gangs as he would expose them to security for arrests to be executed.
