Kampala, Uganda | THE INDEPENDENT | Unknown assailants have brutally killed a retired employee of United Nations-UN in Uganda in Kyankyima Zone in Kasangati town council Wakiso district. Kampala Metropolitan Deputy Police spokesperson, Luke Owoyesigyire identified the deceased as Barnabas Kakyaama Muwonge.
