June 15 started like any other day for Batilimao Ssetuba, alias Rasta Batio. He was in high spirits after he woke up. His mother remembers him asking for a dressing mirror and a comb. He wanted to look his best.

When Batio bid his loved ones farewell and embarked on his journey to Makerere University, little did they know that they would not see him alive again. His lifeless body would be discovered at Mulago hospital’s morgue after he went missing for one week.

The circumstances surrounding Rasta Batio’s untimely demise remain shrouded in mystery. Mr Sebastian Ssetuba—Batio’s father—says Mulago hospital told him that his son’s remains were brought in by a police patrol from an undisclosed clinic in Nalukolongo.
The suspicion is that Batio was a victim of a hit-and-run accident.

Known for his jovial nature, Batio was a permanent fixture in Makerere’s bouts of electioneering. He used his musical skills to compose songs for numerous politicians within the university community.

Who was he?
Growing up, Batio earned the nickname “Batman” due to emulating the iconic superhero, drawing inspiration from the Batman movies.
