Shafiq Mbogo, a fourth year private student pursuing bachelor’s degree in International Business and Trade at Shenyang University in Shenyang City, has died.
Mbogo was found dead outside his hostel of residence on Thursday (February 27, 2020) at about 2pm in the capital of Liaoning Province.
The acting ambassador to China, Philip Kanyoonzi, said initial information indicated that Mbogo had died after he fell off from the balcony of his hostel.
The embassy has contacted the school administration and the Public Security Bureau who confirmed the death and informed that investigations are underway before they can formally communicate to the embassy about the actual cause of death.
They however, informed that initial investigations ruled out homicide.
His mother Dorothy Wagalinda said her son had no reason to kill himself and demanded for a thorough investigation before the body is returned to Uganda for burial.
Kanyoonzi said the school had already communicated to Wagalinda about the death.
