Frank Kalimuzo

Vice Chancellor of Makerere

Murdered by Idi Amin in Cold Blood.

He was picked from his official residence and killed later at Makindye. Amin had on several occasions accused Kalimuyzo, who was from Bufunbiro/risoro, of being a spy for the government of Rwanda - and for Amin this suspicion was conclusive.

He was appointed as Vice Chancellor of the newly formed Makerere University by President Apollo Milton Obote. At the time, the President of Uganda doubled as Chancellor. In his brief occupancy of the office, Commerce, Forestry, Law and Technology disciplines were added to those on offer. Veterinary Medicine, which was being offered at Nairobi University, was introduced at Makerere while Music, Dance and Drama became diploma subjects. The main Library and Albert Cook Medical Library were extended in 1972. Kalimuzo was murdered during Idi Amin’s time as President.

Mr Mateo Auko

He was the third born of seven, he studied in Pajule, he used to walk six miles to (and from) school. After finishing his junior education, he joined the Police force. He excelled and studied in the UK at the Police academy in Hendon and he studied in Sandhurst as well.

Auko (RIP) was chief of CID. Auko's death is inextricably linked to Okoya's murder, as Auko was one of the investigators into Okoya's murder.

The late Auko was killed as he travelled to Jinja. The exact location is unclear, but it is between Iganga and Jinja. This was a conspiracy (involving Amin) to cover Okoya's murderers.

Anyone with further information may add it in the comments section or send it discreetly to
