Kibaale: Police Investigate Motorcycle Rider’s Death Following A Bar Fight

Kibaale District police is investigating circumstances surrounding the sudden death of a 24-year-old motorcycle rider which followed a bar fight over a barmaid.

Ronald Byabagambi, the deceased, was a resident of Nyamarunda Cell, Nyamarunda Town Council in the Kibaale district.

On Wednesday, the deceased and his colleague, one Amigo Atugonza reportedly had a misunderstanding at around 9:30pm. According to some residents at the crime scene, the two colleagues had fallen in love with one girl.

One of the 6 bar attendants at “Life bar and Lodge” in Nyamarunda Town. This therefore sparked off the quarrel when they failed to agree on who would get the girl.

Apparently, Amigo and Byabagambi jumped on each other in a fight that led to the death of Byabagambi. Amigo apparently hit him with a brick on the head. They rushed him to a clinic for treatment where they pronounced him dead.

The Nyamarunda Cell LC I Maurice Musana, however, described the deceased as a notorious man who never respected leaders and loved fighting.

“We have been on most occasions settling grudges arising from his behavior but he had never surrendered,” Musana said.

Enock Kaleba, the Officer in charge Criminal Investigations Department at Kibaale Police said investigations into the incident had begun.

He further said all bar owners had been ordered to report to police for registration so as to be monitored. He also let the relatives of the deceased to go forward with the burial after the autopsy but the suspected killer is on the run.

Area leaders led by John Sanyu the Chairperson LCIII for Nyamarunda Town Council who are equally concerned about the rising criminality in the area have called for vigilance among residents.

They also stressed the need to step up security to curtail the crime rate.
