Arrest made in Kato murder

Timothy Kincaid

Last week the police in Uganda were certain that the murder of gay activist David Kato was a robbery gone wrong and arrested his driver. Now they have a brand new explanation and a brand new suspect under arrest. (Reuters)

“The prime suspect, Nsubuga Enock, was arrested today at around 4pm when he went to visit his girlfriend,” police spokesman Vincent Ssetake told Reuters.

“He has confessed to the murder. It wasn’t a robbery and it wasn’t because Kato was an activist. It was a personal disagreement but I can’t say more than that.”

Frankly, I think the new story is about as believable as the last.

Uganda is a country run by a corrupt government which has a vested interest in downplaying the possibility that Kato, who has been targeted by anti-gay death threats, was murdered for his activism. It’s hard to take anything the police present as credible.

A personal disagreement being the end of a man like Kato sounds very, very fishy to me. Sounds like they are trying to keep the situation from escalating, socially.
