Police in Kampala Metropolitan East have arrested two suspects, who allegedly strangled to death a passenger they were attempting to rob, and threw his body out of their motor vehicle, at Kyetume village to make it appear like it was an accident.
Uganda Police Spokesperson Fred Enanga said that their investigators studied the CCTV footage and started searching for the vehicle and its killer occupants. The occupants were captured while throwing the lifeless body of a man, out of their car and drove off.
“They were traced and arrested along old Masaka Road. Upon interrogation, they admitted having killed the victim, whom they did not know, but lured him into their vehicle, from the taxi park stage where he was waiting for vehicles heading to Jinja,” said Enanga in a statement on Monday.
He added that; “They branched off Katosi Road to rob their target, who attempted to defend himself but was overpowered, strangled and the body dumped in Kyetume-Mukono. The thugs were identified as Bamwine Alex alias Kainerugaba Felix, and Kalema Emmanuel, who were using a Mark 11, white in colour of registration number UAR 066B.”
Enanga also stated that the deceased was on Monday afternoon identified by relatives as Mutebi Ggugwa Ronald, 33, a businessman and a resident of Walusibi in Mukono and Senyi landing site, Ssi sub-county in Buikwe District.
