Ugandan Minister of State for Labour, Charles Okello Engola, shot dead by his bodyguard.

On Tuesday, May 2nd, the Minister of State for Labor in Uganda, Charles Okello Engola, was shot and killed by one of his bodyguards in what appears to have been a private dispute.

The attacker, whose identity has not been revealed, then turned the gun on himself, resulting in his death. The state broadcaster UBC and other sources reported the incident.

Charles Engola, a retired army colonel, served in the government of President Yoweri Museveni as the junior minister in charge of labor.

According to Brigadier Felix Kulayigye, a spokesperson for the army, an “unfortunate incident” resulted in Engola’s death, and the army and police will conduct a joint investigation. Police detectives are currently at the scene.

The shooting took place inside Engola’s home in a Kampala suburb. According to local media reports, there may have been a dispute over the bodyguard’s wages, as witnesses claimed that the soldier was yelling that he had not been paid for a long time despite working for a minister.

However, the motive for the shooting has not been confirmed.

The incident is a tragic reminder of the dangers of being a public figure, particularly in areas where political tensions and security risks are high.

It is not clear whether the bodyguard had any political or ideological motivations for his actions, but the fact that he was able to fire and kill the one person he was meant to protect, underscores the importance of ensuring that security personnel are properly trained and vetted before being assigned to protect high-ranking officials.

The death of Charles Engola is a loss for the Ugandan government and the country as a whole. Engola had a long and distinguished career in the military, and his service as Minister of State for Labor was an important contribution to the country’s development.

The investigation into his death will hopefully shed light on what happened and why, and help prevent similar tragedies in the future

    We are yet to see any direct Ark 2 gameplay, but developer Studio Wildcard has started to tease what we can expect. Originally, Ark 2 was set to be much like its predecessor, aka a ‘sandbox survival experience’ but things have changed somewhat. You can play ARK: Survival Evolved in either single-player or multiplayer mode. To make it fun, you will fight your way through multiple levels, using various enhancements for carrying tools, your defense gear, and weapons. In addition to all that, you get to explore the wild environments and impressive graphics of this action-packed adventure game. Keep in mind that you will need a high-end PC to handle the versatile Unreal Engine 4 that powers the visuals and other elements of the game. If you have a modern gaming PC, then the better your experience playing the game.

    Real-Time Translation Experience the thrill of playing Happy Wheels in your local language. happy wheels? more like… unhappy wheels!!!! hahahahahahahahaha now.gg is the ultimate platform for playing games online for free without downloading. Just click the ‘Play in Browser’ button and play Happy Wheels instantly in browser! Happy Wheels can be a bit gory, in a cartoon kind of way. For example, in one level when your character is transported back to prehistoric times, a non-playable character gets eaten by a dinosaur, at least partially. His limbs are left behind in a spray of pixellated blood you have to drive your segway through. It’s nothing too graphic, but Happy Wheels might not be appropriate for younger children as a result. The game also sometimes freezes up, making your character’s movements stick occasionally.
