In November last year, more than 50 people were shot and killed during a government crackdown on the streets of Uganda’s capital, Kampala. Officials defended the use of live fire, saying the police were responding to rioters. But a new investigation by BBC Africa Eye documents a killing spree on Kampala Road, and shows damning evidence that Ugandan security forces, firing from the back of a police truck, shot at least seven unarmed people.
UPDATE: Following this #BBCAfricaEye investigation into last year’s police killings in Kampala, the editor of one of Uganda’s biggest newspapers has been summoned for questioning by police after reporting on the new evidence and findings presented in it.
