KASESE MASSACRE!! Unclaimed Bodies Buried

KASESE MASSACRE!! Unclaimed Bodies Buried

By Serestino Tusingwire

Police on Sunday buried 52 unidentified Kasese massacre victims after one week since the incident happened.

The mass burial took place at Rukoki UPDF army barracks in Kasese district, and religious leaders from all top religions combined the final prayers.


This comes after Kasese locals requested government to bury the corpses, arguing that most of them could hardly be identified due to severe injuries they had on their faces.

Police on Wednesday accepted to give back corpses to their relatives after postmortem but not all of them were picked.


It is alleged that the residents adamantly refused to pick these corpses because they had already decomposed and were in weird condition.

It’s worth noting that the Kasese clashes that happened last weekend between security and royal guards of Rwenzururu kingdom left over 60 dead.
