It  cannot  be  proclaimed  that  these  atrocities  in  anyway  took a form  of political struggle. It was pure murder because some of the people killed were very old men and women and others were children and babies. Abubaker  Katongole  was  80  years, Segululigamba  was 75, Haliima Nbatanzi was 80, Aisha Katende was 85, Nuliat Namakula was 2, Hamida  Nansamba  was  18 months.  Most of the children were below 5 years.

It should also be  noted  that  the  list here  includes  only  those  people  from  one  county, and  not  all  of  them were  recorded. The names of the rest of the people who died throughout Ankole District are not available to us. In addition, it was not even possible to recover all the bodies of the people known to have died.

For instance, of the 64 people we have recorded here, only 36 bodies were recovered from the water in which they were thrown. They were  buried  at  a  time  of  fear  and  distress, with  intimidation  being carried out by soldiers (the purported liberators) and other government officials  whose  duty  should  be  to  protect  all citizens. It was not possible to burry them in their homes as this was "a danger zone"; so they were buried in mass graves at Nyamitanga mosque in Mbarara. The survivors fled the area and went to settle in Kyazanga in Masaka District, leaving their land to be occupied by their
