ChimpReports understands that the murder happened around 1am in Bwaise and according to his son Ssenyange Junior, unknown gunmen donning masks forced their way into the house and shot him dead.
Ssenyange served as a former national team captain and was best remembered for having led the Bombers to the 10th All Africa Games hosted in Maputo city, Mozambique in 2011.
