Kampala Lord Mayor Erias Lukwago has asked the Police to explain to the public how Bogere Omwongo died in its custody at Clock Tower Police Station.

Lukwago made the remarks at the City Mortuary in Kampala on Wednesday after a postmortem revealed that the Bogere died of kidney bleeding.

Lukwago said that Bogere died in deep pain in front of Police officers and called for an investigation into how the Police handle suspects.

He said that by the time he reached the mortuary, there were no records showing that Bogere had died and said this is an indication that Police has gaps which need to be improved since they are at the forefront of rendering services to the public.

According to Fred Odong the brother to Bogere, the family got to know of his death from a relative in Kenya.

Odongo said that after Bogere’s death in Police custody, the government should have given them decent transportation for the casket.

Bogere’s friend Robert Mutyaba said that it was sad to have lost a friend who he worked with at the Old Taxi Park as a driver.
