Buganda’s Ndiga Clan Head Daniel Bbosa Shot Dead in Kampala

Police have commenced investigations into circumstances under which the head of Ndiga clan of Buganda Kingdom and businessman, Daniel Bbosa, was shot dead on Sunday.

The murder-by-shooting incident occurred at 6:00pm in Kikandwa Zone, Lungujja Parish, Lubaga Division.

“The incident involved Mr. Daniel Bbosa, the esteemed head of Ndiga clan and director of Transa Electrical,” said Kampala Metropolitan Police deputy spokesperson, Luke Owoyesigyire.

“Mr. Bbosa was fatally shot by yet-to-be-identified assailants as he was approaching his residence,” he observed, adding, “The assailants, riding on a motorcycle, opened fire at Mr. Bbosa’s motor vehicle, bearing registration number UAH 637X, resulting in his immediate demise.”

Police further disclosed that “during the heinous act, a vigilant local resident bravely intervened, knocking down the assailants’ motorcycle and alerting the community.”

Owoyesigyire said members of the community swiftly mobilised, leading to a confrontation with the assailants. 

“Mob justice ensued, resulting in the death of one assailant at the scene, while the other remains in critical condition,” he noted.

High profile Ugandans have been killed in similar fashion.

The annual crime report released by Police earleir this week showed that 300 people were shot dead in Uganda last year.

Police said the motive behind this senseless act of violence remains unknown, and efforts are underway to identify and apprehend the perpetrators.

“Furthermore, we have recovered the firearm allegedly used in the murder incident, along with the motorcycle registration number UEX 754E, utilised by the assailants during the attack,” said Owoyesigyire, emphasising, “These findings will be instrumental in our ongoing investigation.”
