Two Ugandan drug traffickers have been executed in China’s Guandong province. The two are Omar Ddamulira and Ham Andrew Ngobi.
Ugandan foreign ministry spokesman Fred Opolot said the Ugandan government had attempted to engage the Chinese authorities, to try and stay their execution without luck.
According to Opolot the two men who had been in prison were allowed to speak to their families before they were executed.
He added that Ddamulira was executed on May 21 while Ngobi was hanged on June 24 in Guandong province, Guangzhou a city populated by majority of Ugandan businessmen.
Drug trafficking is a crime in the East Asian nation that carries the death sentence.
Last October, a report by a delegation of Ugandan MPs to China revealed that 46 Ugandan inmates on death row or life imprisonment are languishing in Chinese Prisons.
