Ugandan prince gunned down
A member of one of Uganda's monarchies, has been shot dead in a bar in Fort Portal in the west of the country.
Prince Charles Happy Kijanangoma was a part of the family of the king of western Uganda's Toro kingdom.
He was shot more than 10 times by unidentified gunmen in the Palace View Bar on Thursday, but the police only released the details on Sunday.
Seven people in the pub survived with injuries.
The Prince had been visiting Fort Portal to attend a court hearing.
He was involved in a dispute with the Queen Mother, Best Kemigisha, over control of the kingdom's land.
The hearing of the case was concluded on the day of the killing.
President Yoweri Museveni has condemned the murder as a brutal and primitive act.
In a message of condolence to His Highness Oyo Nyimba Kabamba IV of Toro, the president extended his deepest condolences to the king, the entire royal family and all the people of Toro.
President Museveni called on the police to bring the gunmen to justice.
