Quite a big number of muslim sheikhs have been killed in Uganda since 2012. So far 10 sheikhs have been taken down.
These sheikhs have been killed in almost the same way where unknown assailants riding on boda bodas gun them down to death. The reason for their killings is not well established to the masses apart from knowing that all the slain sheikhs at one time belonged to the Allied Democratic Forces (ADF) a rebel group which carried out its operations in Western Uganda in 1990s.
First it was Sheikh Abdul Karim Sentamu who was shot dead in April 2012 and the latest murder is that of a UPDF major, Sheikh Muhammad Kiggundu who was shot dead together with his driver Sgt Mukasa on Saturday last week in Masanafu.
