Uganda’s Military Spy Agency on Spot Over Killing Boxing Legend

Isaac Ssenyange alias Zebra was a role model to dozens of youth in Uganda’s capital Kampala.

Uganda’s military spy agency is in trouble for shooting and killing country’s boxing legend, Isaac Ssenyange alias Mando Zebra.

Ssenyange was killed in the wee hours of Wednesday morning this week at his home village in Uganda’s capital Kampala. Ssenyange met his death minutes after he had finished watching an English Premier League match between Brighton and Arsenal.

It has since emerged that the 39 years old boxer was killed by Chieftaincy of Military Intelligence –CMI for yet to be known reasons. President Yoweri Museveni has since admitted that Ssenyange was killed by security personnel.

“At first I thought they were thugs disguising in uniform, but as I continued investigations, I found out that Zebra was killed by security personnel. This is sad and devastating and I AM VERY SORRY about this. I will keep on this case and will bring every finding to the knowledge of his family and the murderers will be dealt with accordingly,” Museveni said.

CMI operatives moving in two numberless vehicles commonly known as Drones sealed off roads and corridors leading to St Francis Zone, in Bwaise III Parish, Kawempe Division, in Kampala city at around 11pm but Ssenyange was killed some minutes past midnight.

Ssenyange was killed at the time when he was going to meet Museveni to discuss his mobilization strategy for January 14 polls. Uganda will be casting presidential and parliamentary votes in the next two weeks but the decease had opted to support Museveni who has been in power for 35 years.

“Indeed, Zebra was meant to come and see me when he was killed. Zebra’s wife told me people in police uniform came to pick Zebra but he jumped over the wall and could have met another group who shot him,” Museveni said.

Ssenyange was Uganda’s boxer and former captain of country’s boxing team dubbed The Bombers. Museveni rang his wife who narrated to him the events in detail. The boxer was training many youths in the ghetto and giving them hope in their search for meaningful life.

Security cameras erected in various points of Kampala City capture the vehicles loitering in Bwaise III Parish an over 10 armed security personnel emerged out. Most of them were wearing face masks despite it being night hours.
