Uganda’s State Minister for Labour, Employment and Industrial Relations, Charles Okello Engola, has been sh%t d€ad.
Engola was sh%t on Tuesday morning, May 2, by his bodyguard at his home in Kyanja, a Kampala suburb.
DailyMonitor reports that the bodyguard, identified as Pte Wilson Sabiiti, also k#lled himself using the same g¥n that he sh%t the minister with.
“He was sh%t at his residence in Kyanja by one of his bodyguards who allegedly fir€d several sh%ts at close range. He fled from the scene up to the trading centre at Kyanja, Ring Road where he entered a salon and also sh%t himself d€ad,” police spokesperson, Fred Enanga told journalists in Kampala.
Uganda’s Speaker of Parliament Anita Among also confirmed the minister’s death while presiding over the plenary session Tuesday morning.
“This morning, I received sad news that Hon Engola has been sh%t by his bodyguard. May his soul rest in peace. That was God’s plan. We can’t change anything,” Ms Among said.
“The guard said he hadn’t been paid Ush4 million. He said he had a pregnant woman and his children were not going to school yet the minister’s children were schooling,” an eyewitness said, according to The East African.
