US journalist Christopher Allen killed for criticizing Museveni
US JOURNALIST CHRISTOPHER ALLEN ‘S BODY HANDED OVER TO US EMBASSY
First let me send my condolences to the people of Bududa and Sironko for their loss that nobody seems to care about. The people of Bududa have suffered such a calamity and dictator Museveni is busy campaigning to amend the constitution to stay in power. Martha Nangalama was very right in calling out most MP’s specifically NRM MPs from Bugisu for sleeping with Museveni who does not care about that area. We are better people and a fund should be established to help the people of Bududa.
Back to the headline story. The body of US journalist Christopher Allen who was killed by UPDF near the Uganda-South Sudan boarder has been handed over to the US representative in South Sudan. Christopher Allen in the picture was a 25 year old young man assigned to report on the South Sudan war. The committee that governs journalists has called for an investigation into Christopher Allen’s death by the Ugandan forces.
According to the complaint, Allen was deliberately shot and killed for his criticism of Museveni fueling the civil war in South Sudan. Allen had written numerous articles criticizing UPDF killing of civilians and Museveni’s arming of the government of South Sudan. Allen was embedded with a unit of the SPLA-IO when he was shot .
According to sources Allen was clearly wearing a press vest when he died. According to Michael Makuei, South Sudan’s minister for information any one on the SPLA-IO’s side is always a target but regretted his death. He went on to say that the journalist had entered the country illegally after being denied a visa because of his hostile reports about UPDF.
He further said that Allen was a criminal and was treated as such. He was shot when he was taking UPDF pictures in South Sudan fighting alongside South Sudan’s army.
According to Col. Paul Lam Gabriel, UPDF, forces just took him out without warning. This has proven that Museveni’s political belief is to eliminate those that disagree with his political views similar to what happened to Dr. Kayiira.
DON’T LET THE SMARTPHONE BE SMARTER THAN YOU.
