The Uganda Police are mourning the death of a senior police officer who died on Monday night in her home, although the circumstances surrounding her death are baffling.
According to a statement released by Kampala Metropolitan Police Spokesperson SP Patrick Onyango on Tuesday December 1, 2020, Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP) Gloria Nakiboneka, was found dead in her bed by a maid.
Onyango’s statement reads in part thus; “The management of Kampala Metropolitan Police with deep sorrow announces the death of one of our staff ASP Gloria Nakiboneka, who passed on last night at unknown time.
ASP Nakiboneka was the Officer in Charge Child and Family Protection Unit at Kabalagala Police Station.
She was found dead in her house in Kitemu. She was staying with her six (06) months old baby and a maid.
The deceased has not been feeling well since last Friday and she was on maternity leave. The body was taken to the mortuary for postmortem.”
ASP Nakiboneka’s Profile
According SP Onyango, “the deceased joined Police in 2014. She was born on 01/09/1986 to Ben Musisi, a Prisons officer, and Beatrice Baguma.
She went to St. Kizito Primary School, then Bukandula College Gombe for her ‘O’ level education and Luzira Lakeside College for ‘A’ level education before joining Makerere University where she graduated with a degree.
