Former Buyende District Police Commander Muhammad Kirumira has been shot dead.
The maverick police officer who months ago resigned from the force, was gunned down Saturday evening near his home.
Photos shared on social media showed that the outspoken officer was killed along with an unidentified lady.
Police spokesperson Emilian Kayima told us officers were at the murder scene and that soon he would release confirmation of the murder.
Kirumira is said to have been killed in his car Reg Number UAJ 228V, near his home in Bulenga.
Reports say Kirumira was alive when he was removed from the car and rushed to Lubaga Hospital, where he was later confirmed dead.
The officer who broke ties with the Police establishment, had long talked about living constantly under threat.
In January this year, he resigned from the force after indiscipline charges were brought against him.
He was arraigned before the Police Tribunal and demoted.
