The jailed footballer who carried Archbishop Luwum’s body

“We, however, got a major shock on seeing the third body. It obviously belonged to a religious man who was dressed in religious attire and with a red collar around his swollen neck.
Because his face was in a very bad shape, apparently as a result of torture (being a Catholic) I first mistook him to be Cardinal Emmanuel Nsubuga who was then the Archbishop of Kampala. However on more careful observation, I came to realise that this one was much taller and darker.”

Ntensibe is the one who carried the archbishop’s body to the store or cell and according to him, he seemed to have died a few minutes or hours before since he could still feel the warmth of the body. The archbishop’s body had a very deep bullet wound in the head and it appeared he had died after being shot in the head or face because unlike the other two, the rest of his body appeared a bit alright.

Museveni Survived.

How Museveni survived public execution

The suspected guerrillas fighting Amin’s government had been tracked and captured since December 1972 across the country before they were court marshalled in Kampala and sentenced to death by firing squad.

In Summary:

Cheating death. Early this week, President Museveni, in a letter to the media, referred to an incident in Mbale, where he narrowly survived death while his other associates were killed by soldiers loyal to Idi Amin in the 1970s. Faustin Mugabe revisits the incident the President talked about.

Today 40 years ago, President Yoweri Museveni and a dozen of other fervent freedom fighters survived death by firing squad orchestrated by the brute President Idi Amin. On Saturday, February 10, 1973, 11 suspected Front for National Salvation (FRONASA) rebels and one robber, Badru Semakula, were executed by firing squad in public in the four regions of the country.
The suspected guerrillas fighting Amin’s government had been tracked and captured since December 1972 across the country before they were court marshalled in Kampala and sentenced to death by firing squad. The military tribunal chaired by Lt. Col. Ozzo found the 11 guilty of treason by involving in rebel activities against the sitting government.
The tribunal, which sat Makindye Barracks in Kampala, decided that the 11 rebels and one robber be shot dead in public in their home villages in front of their parents, relatives, friends and colleagues.
This was done to deter any rebel activities as well as Kondoism or thuggery in the country. FRONASA, a military group, was established in 1971 by Ugandan exiles in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania to fight Amin – and was led by Yoweri Museveni.
In his book, Sowing the Mustard Seed, page 57, President Museveni wrote: “We began infiltrating arms into Uganda around May 1972, some to Kabale, some to Atiak and some to Kampala. Those in Kabale were kept by James Karambuzi and Joseph Bitwaari, who were publicly executed by Amin in 1973. The ones in Kampala were kept by Haruna Kibuye, and those in Atiak by Akena p’Ojok. We also developed cells in Tooro, Mbarara, Mbale and Jinja.”
