Kigezi High Student Killed in Inter-School Clash

One Kigezi High School student was yesterday stoned to death during a clash between his colleagues and students of Nyabikoni Secondary School.

Elly Maate, the Kigezi regional police commander identifies the deceased as Rogers Bakashaba, a Senior 5 student from Mbarara.

The fight happened last evening at around 5pm when a large number of students from Kigezi High, armed with sticks, marched to Nyabikoni SS which is located in Nyabikoni ward, in the Central Division of Kabale Municipality.

The reason for the invasion was still unclear.

The Nyabikoni students however, fought back and in the exchange, Bakashaba was hit with a blunt object believed to be a stone which injured him on the head.

He bled to death about 50 meters from Nyabikoni SS.

Police responded immediately and forced the invading group back to their school.

A total of 28 students of Kigezi High and 1 from Nyabikoni SS were also arrested for questioning.


This is the second student at Kigezi High School to be killed in inter-school violence since 1993.
