The Freelance journalist and contributor to New Vision newspaper was killed by unidentified assailants. According to the New Vision’s management, the body of Pere was found in a pool of blood on Entebbe road in Masajja, a few kilometers south west of the capital city, Kampala.

The Uganda Journalists’ Union (UJU), an IFJ affiliate, said that there were injuries all over the journalist’s body but no signs of struggle at the scene, leading the police to suggest that Pere had been killed elsewhere and his body dumped by the roadside.
