Masaka — Reports that one of his bodyguards has been run over on his way to Kampala and is dead, have left presidential candidate, Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu aka Bobi Wine in tears.
A video clip on social media showed Kyagulanyi mourning the death of one of his bodyguards, a one Frank Ssenteza, who he said had been deliberately knocked dead by a military truck in Busega.
