The strange death of a third year Makerere University Veterinary Medicine student Emmanuel Tegu continues to raise questions among Ugandans.
Tegu was allegedly beaten by people inside the University at night on June 28. He died last Saturday at Mulago Hospital where he had been admitted.
The Speaker Rebecca Kadaga Wednesday during Plenary directed the Minister of Internal Affairs General Jejje Odongo to present a clear report to Parliament about the death of the law student on Tuesday next week.
Kadaga’s directive follows a a concern raised by Leader of Opposition in the August House Akol Betty about the death of Tegu at Makerere University.
Akol told the house she wants the Minister of Internal Affairs to give a comprehensive report about the actions of LDUs and ensure that justice prevails to the deceased and family.
Youth legislator, a former Makerere University Guild President, Ann Adeke told the house that the reports presented by the Police about the death of Emmanuel Tegu are inconsistent.
Police had told the nation that Tegu was allegedly beaten by a mob who mistook him for a thief, which the family of the deceased squarely dismissed.
The family say their son was beaten by LDUs as confirmed by hospital reports.
Deputy Inspector General of Police Stephen Muzeyi Sabitti ordered the force to dig deep into the killing of Tegu.
Police is expected to analyse the CCTV footage from St Augustine Chapel to assist them in their investigations as the nation prays for justice to prevail.
