It’s a very dark and somber morning in Makerere University as the student community has just learnt of unfortunate death of one of our very own fellow student Michael Otira’s whose body was found lying lifeless yesterday on Monday 3rd April 2017 in one of the staff quarters rooms. Michael who was pursuing a Diploma in Mechanical Engineering was a second year student of this great institution. His whereabouts have been unknown since last Thursday, on March 29th.
He was residing in one of the staff quarters on the western gate Murom road stretch nearing Lumumba Hall.
According to witnesses including neighbors and residents at the scene, Michael must have succumbed to electric shock considering the burns that were discovered on his body. Otira’s body has been taken to Mulago referral Hospital by Uganda Police for a post-mortem. We shall keep you posted about any information that comes on Michael’s death once they emerge. May his soul rest in eternal peace.
