Kampala Metropolitan Police (KMP) has confirmed the deaths of a UPDF military officer and private security guard following a bar brawl. The dead UPDF officer has been identified as Moses Mubangizi while the deceased security guard has been identified as Huron Otim.

KMP Police Deputy Spokesperson Luke Owoyesigyire said officers at Katwe Territorial Police were investigating the double murder which took place at around 11PM on February 04, 2023. According to Owoyesigyire, Otim picked a fight with UPDF officers at the bar and went back to his beat to retrieve his gun.

But UPDF officer Mubangizi fought with Otim and disarmed him, giving the gun to another security guard, identified as Simom Wana. The Deputy KMP Publicist further noted that Otim then attacked Wana, took the gun back and returned to the bar where he shot and killed Mubangizi. The mob then beat Otim to death.

Wana has since being arrested and detained at Katwe Police Division to assist in the investigations. “The police responded to the scene and recovered one gun and one bullet, but the magazine is missing. The bodies were taken to KCCA City Mortuary for postmortem, and Wana has been arrested and is being held at Katwe police division for further investigations,” said Owoyesigyire. “The public is asked to inform the police promptly of any incidents involving private security guards.”
