President Yoweri Museveni has apologized for the death of national boxing team captain, Zebra Ssenyange, also known as Mando whom he said was killed by security operatives.

Mando was gunned down at around 1 am on Wednesday morning by unknown assailants a few metres away from his home in St Francis Zone, Bwaise III Parish in Kawempe division..

Giving his New Year message last evening, the President said he was sorry for the death of the boxer who was also a staunch ruling NRM party mobilizer.

The President explained that whereas he didn’t personally know the fallen boxer, he was doing a good mobilizing for the ruling party in Bwaise where he resided before his demise.

Museveni admitted that the deceased who was supposed to meet him was killed by security personnel who were carrying out an operation but noted his own investigations into the gruesome murder are still ongoing to unearth the truth.

Museveni noted that Ssenyange’s wife and son cooperated with security that had forced them open the door, but noted that the deceased was shot by another group of soldiers who had remained outside the fence as part of the military operation.

Museveni insisted that the former boxer was killed by the military during an operation.
