Luke Owoyesigyire, the deputy Kampala metropolitan police spokesperson, said Mubangizi fought with Otim, disarmed him, and gave the gun to another security guard identified as Simon Wana.

“Otim then attacked Wana, took the gun back and returned to the bar where he shot and killed Mubangizi. The mob then beat Otim to death,” Owoyesigyire said.

Katwe police responded to the scene and recovered one gun and one bullet. Owoyesigyire said the magazine was missing.

“The bodies were taken to KCCA city mortuary for postmortem, and Wana has been arrested and is being held at Katwe police division for further investigations,” Owoyesigyire said.
