Head of the production at Star Radio, Robert Kagolo was last night shot to death at his brothers’ home in Bugembejembe village, Wakiso District.
The incident occurred yesterday while the deceased was returning from his ancestral home where he had gone to attend his brothers’ burial after he got into an argument with an LDU for knocking on the gate and this escalated into a bullet fight said Kampala Metropolitan Deputy Police spokesperson, Luke Owoyesigyire.
He further states that although they tried to rush Kagolo to St. Josephs hospital in Wakiso district, it was a little too late and he unfortunately lost the battle to the injuries he acquired after being shot at.
His body is currently at city mortuary as we await the results of the postmortem findings from the hospital.
While the LDUs, Mamuli Rashid and his colleagues are currently being held by the police while investigations are underway to evaluate the degree of their offense with which they will be charged before the courts of law.
At the time of his death, Kagolo worked as a head of production at Star Radio, which is part of the Uganda Broadcasting Cooperation. Previously, he also once served as the president of the Uganda Journalists Association, a body that unifies all journalists and governs all their work.

Police brutality against journalists and all citizens of Uganda has been going on for a while. Recently, two journalists attached to NTV and NBS were beaten by police and the US government recently placed sanctions on some Ugandan citizens over abuse of human rights.
He shall surely be missed by the journalist body in Uganda for the tremendous work he did while he was still alive.
