University student shot in Mukono was misdirected by boda guy
Fortunately, Natasha's condition is stable, and she has been transferred from Kawolo Hospital to Mulago for further treatment.
Nagayi Natasha, the Uganda Christian University student who was mistakenly shot by a police officer after being confused for a burglar is now out of danger and under observation at Mulago Hospital.
New findings from the police indicate that a boda boda rider who transported her to her OB’s residence provided misleading information resulting in her ending up at the wrong house.
Fred Enanga, the police spokesperson, noted that Natasha, accompanied by her friends, was given a key by Bandishe Ashraf, a former schoolmate, to stay at his place after a party.
Initially, it was believed that Ashraf was Natasha’s boyfriend. The rooms of Bandishe and the police officer who shot Natasha are opposite each other.
“Natasha together with other OBs and OGs had gone out for a party at Fox Club in Mukono. It got late and she could not go back to the hostel,” Enanga explained.
“To our young girls and daughters in university, staying out at night very late is very risky. There are several risks associated with those late-night movements and activities,” he said.
Fortunately, Natasha’s condition is stable, and she has been transferred from Kawolo Hospital to Mulago for further treatment.
Police have said they are concerned over the recent spate of shootings in several parts of the country that they described as “reckless”.
