President Museveni has apologized to locals in Mityana over the death of two people who were shot during protests that broke out in protest over the detention of Mityana Municipality MP Francis Zaake. In August, protests broke out in Mityana town prompting police to fire live bullets at a commuter taxi registration number UBA 869C in which two people including Samuel Ssekiziyivu and Lawrence Jjingo died whereas others sustained injuries. Speaking at the opening of St. Andrews Cathedral, Namukozi in Mityana district on Saturday, Museveni said he was sorry for the mistake by police that led to death of people and injuring others. “I apologise for the mistake committed by police officers. I can’t tell whether it was intended or done in panic for the officers to fire live bullets at the taxi,”Museveni said.
