This morning we woke up to incredibly sad and shocking news of the sudden death of our NUP Member & Chairman for Kayunga District Local Government, comrade Ffeffekka Serubogo Muhammad. He was found hanging on a tree. For now, we are getting mixed messages from the people on the ground… He has been very vocal against corruption and land grabbing in Kayunga.

An ardent member of the National Unity Platform, Sseruboggo swayed the Kayunga chairperson vote to get a landslide victory in the 20th January polls. He beat off competition from NRM’s Andrew Muwongo, Patrick Ssempijja, and Wabomba Dan. The election also attracted Fred Ssemyalo and Thomas Muwanga.
He was sworn in last month replacing Tom Sserwanga.
