Baleke who is facing charges before Anti Corruption Court is the latest person who claim to have received death threats.

A total of 16 individuals have been killed in the similar manner since 2016 and non of the assailants have been convicted in court.

Kirumira was gunned down on Saturday night near his home in Bulenga after being shot by unknown assassins who were said to be riding on boda boda motor cycles.

President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni branded the killers as pigs warning that they would be arrested and defeated.

Kirumira was the latest victims of the latest assassinations of the high profile individuals in Uganda who were killed in the similar manner.
