Well, this publication has received information that this missing young man who was last seen in Kisasi has been found dead!
We are still gathering details about the circumstances under which this young man lost his precious life.
Simon Akena adds on the long list of missing persons in Uganda who are found dead. It is not yet clear why such a pattern of crime has become popular lately.
It looks like Akena met a brutal death if we are to go by this tweet posted by NBS journalist Raymond Mujuni a while back;
There’s a rage that demands action but there’s a rage of complete and utter resignation.
No one deserved to die the way @SymonKenny died.
That inhumanity and stripping of dignity, that’s not it!
Something radical has got to be done. Something reassuring.
