After three weeks of waiting and complaining, the family of private Wilson Sabiiti have received the body of the soldier for a befitting burial at his ancestral home in Mubali village, Kijula town council, Kabalore district.

Private Wilson Sabiiti who was an army guard ended his life on 2nd May after gunning down Junior minister for Labor Col Charles Okello Engola at his home in Kyanja, a Kampala suburb on 2nd this month.

Engola was buried on 13th May at Awangi village, Iceme Sub county in Oyam district and arrangements to find his successor in parliament (Oyam North) have already been rolled out by electoral commission where his son has since been fronted.


Since the incident, UPDF had held Sabiiti’s body until today when they handed it over to the family. When contacted on several occasions why they’re still holding onto Sabiiti’s body, UPDF spokesperson Brig Felix Kulayigye has been saying the force was still investigating.

However, unlike other officers where burial is conducted by UPDF, Sabiiti’s family will meet the costs because the deceased officer killed his principal Engola and also killed himself. His grave was dug three weeks ago by his family.
