Greetings all my brothers and sisters, my name is Gilbert Olanya. I would like to appreciate the Government of Uganda for removing the three suspects in the killing of Dr. Samuel Michael Ochora.

I am happy that the Residence District Commissioner RDC of Amuru, the District Police Commander DPC of Amuru and Deputy District Internal Security DISO officer of Amuru have been removed from their offices. Now that they have been removed, we want to see justice be done.

Aware that the three suspects have been removed, they should face justice, I would like to inform you that from reliable sources that Dr. Ochora, Amuru District Vet. Officer was killed in cold blood. On that note, I would like the key investigators to go to Lakang Sub County, Amuru District to find out what exactly happened.

I am the Area Member of Parliament of the area, the DPC, the RDC and the DISO. After moving in the bushes they came and hired a lodge at Lakang called Payesu.

And at 3.AM local time the dead body of Dr. Ochora was brought to where the three suspects were sleeping. This is not a joking matter; we should not be fooling around with the death of somebody.

The RDC, DPC and DISO know exactly what happened, the statement given by RDC, that Dr. Ochora was killed by stray bullet, is a very barbaric statement not intended, it was quite baseless and useless, a very barbaric manner. We are giving two weeks to the three suspects to be arraigned before court of law.

I would like to appeal to our brothers and sisters to come together and support the family of Dr. Ochora, let us come together to rescue the family, let us come and help the family, let us come together to support the family who is killed in cold blood.

Our brothers and sisters who are lawyers come and help the family of Dr. Ochora who was killed, government, security personnel officers, we would like to see the RDC, DPC and DISO come to court.
We need justice, we need justice. Thanks.
