Sam Engola Death – Shot By UPDF Guard

The Sam Angola Death news is now trending after it was revealed that a politician had been shot and killed. However, it turned out that another politician named Charles Okello, who shares the same last name as Engola, was the one who was shot, not Sam.
Since they are both political figures and have the same last name, it is possible that people were mistaken. Regarding the fatal incident involving Charles, a UPDF guard shot and killed the 65-year-old Minister of State for Housing, Charles Okello Engola. At the minister’s residence in the Kampala suburb of Kyanja, the UPDF soldier shot the politician.
Later, the guard opened fire in the air before killing himself in a nearby salon. Former legislator Latif Ssebagala Sengendo reported that his neighbor, Hort. Okello Engola, had been killed by gunfire. Uncertainty surrounds the murderer’s motivation. However, according to witnesses, the UPDF guard accused the minister of mistreating him.
