Three days after being bounced at the Parliament premises gate by security, parents of Amos Ssegawa, a 15-year-old senior two student who was shot dead during the November 2020 protests have met the Speaker of Parliament Rebecca Kadaga.
Mother Hajara Nakitto and husband Meddie Semugenyi gave an account of the experience after the death of their son to the Speaker who also directed police to reveal the security officers who shot the boy.
“It’s been a sad mid-morning as I listened to a harrowing account from Hajara Nakitto and husband Meddie Semugenyi about how police shot dead their 15-yr old son, in Kampala on November 19 2020; later forced them to exhume the body for post mortem. The couple footed re-burial expenses,” said Kadaga in a tweet before vowing to help the couple get justice.
Ssegawa, a student at Lubiri High School (Buloba Campus) is one of the 54 people who were killed in the protests that erupted in Kampala and other parts of the country following the arrest of presidential candidate Robert Kyagulanyi in Luuka District.
