Uganda Police Spokesperson, Fred Enanga disclosed this in an interview with journalists, saying that they are following some leads into the murder.

According to the investigators, after stabbing their victim, the assailants searched his home and made off with the deceased’s television set and mobile phone.   Police records show that Brig. Bondo had reported two previous botched attempts of his life in South Sudan, which prompted him to run into self-exile in Uganda.   

In 2016 while in Uganda as a refugee, the deceased declared that he had switched to the side of the South Sudan Vice President Riek Machar and accused President Salva Kiir’s government of extrajudicial killings and human rights abuses.

Brig Bondo claimed that he started receiving threats in the same year after a group of unidentified South Sudanese visited his residence in Nansana in Wakiso district looking for him in vain.

“In 2018, he claimed that assassins had been sent to kill him at Kiryandongo Refugee Settlement Camp and this was the matter that was taken over by the Office of the Prime Minister in Uganda and United Nations agencies,” Enanga said. He visited his family in Nansana in March and decided to stay.
