First, the Kampala university fraternity is mourning the death of a student shot dead by a private security guard. The incident occurred within the Jinja satellite campus in early December 2019.
Katagwa Isaac, 26 years old, met his death just before the 2020 January graduation. In contrast, Katagwa Isaac was a part-time employee at the Kampala University Jinja campus.
Kiira Region Police spokesperson Diana Nandaula confirmed that the occurrence took place at Walukuba Masese Sub-county in Jinja municipality at night. Certainly, Diana also managed to identify the 37 years old criminal suspect named Sayyid Zaid. Furthermore, the suspect is an employee of Star React private Company based in Jinja town.
