Unknown assailants have this morning shot dead a UPDF top soldier, Maj. Suleiman Kiggundu at Masanafu in Wakiso District.
Maj. Kiggundu also a husband to renowned traditional healer, Mama Fiina, died on spot with his body guard who is yet to be identified.
Maj. Kiggundu has been known not only as a soldier, but also a top Muslim cleric.
Maj. Kiggundu has been a witness in a murder case of Muslim clerics against Tabliq leader Sheikh Muhammad Yunus Kamoga.
It should be remembered that there has been a civil war between two Muslim groups, that is, the Tabliqs and the Shia group, resulting to the murder of top Muslim clerics in Uganda.
Maj. Kiggundu is added to a list of other victims of the killings who include among others; Sheikh Mustafa, who was killed at Bwebajja, on Entebbe Road, Sheikh Abdulkadir Muwaya killed in Mayuge District and Sheikh Hassan Kirya who was killed at Bweyogerere in Wakiso District.
