Edison Nasasira, a youth who was shot dead in Rukungiri town last Wednesday during the anti-age limit removal procession has been laid to rest today on Friday amidst tears and sorrow.

Nasasira was shot dead as police fired live bullets and teargas to disperse off mammoth crowd which was led by former presidential candidate Dr. Kizza Besigye who had taken the ‘Kojikwatako’ campaign in Rukungiri District.

The rally was intended as a consultation meeting with locals about changing article 102(b) aiming at removing age limit thus enabling president Yoweri Museveni stand for president even after clocking 75 years of age.

During the final send off of Nasasira, hundreds of mourner turned up putting on red ribbons as a sign of protesting against the contentious age limit bill.
