The Inspector General of Police Gen Kale Kayihura has donated Shs5 million facilitate the burial of a student of St Mary’s College Rushoroza who was shot dead by a policeman at the weekend.

Gen Kayihura also promised to use all means to arrest the killer policeman who is on the run.

Allan Ntunguka, a senior five student of St Mary’s College Rushoroza in Kabale town was on Sunday shot dead as police tried to calm striking students of the school who attempted to riot because senior three students had occupied front seats in the main hall  that are a preserve of senior six students.

This was moments to the kick-off of a football match between British football clubs; Arsenal and Liverpool.

The deceased was hit by a stray bullet.  Mr Job Musawo, who is suspected of shooting the student abandoned his gun at Rushoroza police post and disappeared.

The police director of operations AIGP Asuman Mugyenyi delivered the money and the condolence message to family members on behalf of Gen Kayihura during a requiem mass at Nyakatungunda Catholic Church in Rubanda district.

 Mourners asked police to always use rubber bullets while handling strikes and demonstrations in schools and other institutions.

Rubanda Catholic Church Parish Priest Fr Loius Turyamureba advised students to desist from acts of violence to avoid such unfortunate incidents.

“School children must always concentrate on their studies while at school because it’s the only reason they are in school. Acts of violence must be avoided. Christians must always love God as the only hope for eternal life and always be prepared because death can happen any time,” Fr Turyamureba said.

Mr Devis Twesigye,  the father of the deceased student said he had hopes that his son would be useful to the country because he listened to advise from elders and teachers.
