The family of Kule Muzamiru, a thirteen year old boy who was shot three times by soldiers at the Kasese tally centre last week wants government to compensate them for the loss
The boy was shot during protests over the delay to declare the winners in the Presidential and Parliamentary polls.
Government has pledged Shs 4 million for burial arrangements but the deceased’s father Ali Wabiswa says their son’s life was priceless and government should offer more than just covering burial expenses.
The deceased was a primary four pupil at Basecamp primary school and a resident of Binyonyi village Kasese district.
The Rwenzori East regional police commander, Mr Bob Kagarura regretted the incident, explaining that it was an accident since the police and soldiers were shooting in the air to quell the riot.
He has sent a condolence message to the family of the deceased.
