He was tortured and speared by King Mwanga II before handing him over to the executioner, Mpinga Kaloke, on the evening of Tuesday 25th May 1886. On Wednesday morning 26th May 1886, Mpinga ordered two men, Matembe and Mulyowa, to hack the boy (then 16 years old) into pieces. Ssebuggwawo was first beheaded before he was hacked into pieces at Munyonyo.
