The Police have arrested five of their own members following a shooting in which a 17-year-old boy was killed at Mabanda village in Matugga, Wakiso District, on Saturday night.

Issa Ssemugwe, 17, died on the way to Mulago Hospital after he was allegedly shot by a police officer who was trying to quell a crowd that was allegedly blocking the arrest of their colleagues on robbery charges.

Police say they are holding a constable on charges related to the murder of Ssemugwe, while other four officers are in custody over disobeying lawful orders. Kampala Metropolitan Police spokesman Ibin Ssenkumbi yesterday confirmed both the shooting of Ssemugwe and the arrest of the police officers.

Prof. Waswa Balunywa of the Makerere University Business School in Kampala has entrenched views about the role of leadership that he likes to encapsulate in a single mantra; “leaders are people who do the right thing”.
