The Uganda People’s Defence Forces (UPDF) have finally retrieved the body of Sgt Peter Ouma from River Nile in Jinja District, three days after he was shot dead by Private Jonan Katusiime who also took his life.
The search for Sgt Ouma’s body started immediately after the incident. However, the UPDF Busoga zonal Public Relations Officer, Capt George Musingunzi, on Friday said the body of Sgt Ouma was retrieved a few metres from the crime scene and taken to Jinja Hospital mortuary for a postmortem.

“The body of the UPDF officer that has been missing since Tuesday has been recovered this (Friday) morning and has been taken to Jinja Regional Referral Hospital mortuary for postmortem and later to Bombo military barracks for further management,” Capt Musingunzi said.
It’s not clear whether both bodies will be transported together to Bombo military barracks after the postmortem.

Sgt Ouma, the commander of the Marine Unit at the Nalubaale (Old) Bridge, was on Tuesday fatally shot after he reportedly denied Private Katusiime a Movement Order (Pass leave) that he had asked for days earlier.
It’s these allegations that will guide the investigation that is still being conducted by the police and army.
