Col Maseura Arach

The commander of the 1st Infantry Brigade, Mbale, Col Maseura Arach who was also arrested in Jinja, was tortured and beaten to death; his penis was severed and shoved in his mouth, a practice which became more and more common across the country in cold blooded murder cases.

Following the deaths of the two COs, a bugle was sounded in the early hours of the 11th of July 1971, for soldiers to fall out (assemble); over 450 Acholi and Langi soldiers were isolated, then herded into what was a storage facility. Outside soldiers loyal to Idi Amin; were ordered to open fire indiscriminately at the facility killing all occupants.
