The family of Ronald Sebulime who was wrongfully gunned down by police officers on suspicion that he was trailing State minister for ICT Idah Nantaba to kill her, are this week holding a protest against the Directorate of Public Prosecution, seeking justice for the deceased.
The family through their lawyer Muwada Nkunyingi, revealed that this Thursday, they will be staging a peaceful protest outside the office of DPP and later at police headquarters in Naguru.
Speaking at a community meeting with criminal justice officials at the Vision Group Offices, Nkunyingi wondered why Minister Nantaba and 3 other police officers involved in the shooting are not yet on the charge sheet at the Mukono court, for the murder of Sebulime.
Nkunyingi also accused the office of the DPP of not coming out openly to show where it has reached with the case.
“The police too is hiding a report that elaborates Sebulime’s killing. They are biased because they failed to charge Nantaba. (Sebulime’s) children are very young and they cry every day. Therefore, we want police to be just such that everyone who is accused is charged because there is a lawful penalty for the murderer. Let everyone who is accused get charged. If Nantaba lied to police, let her be charged for giving false information,” he said
In March, shortly after realizing that Sebulime was killed innocently, Police arrested three of its offices Cpl Ssali Edward, PC Opira Ronald and PC Baganza Ronald.
But the lawyer insists Police must arrest the minister and all the officers that were involved in the shooting.
