Mob Kills Goat Thieves, Set Bodies On Fire

Police in Butebo District in Eastern Uganda are investigating the incident in which two suspected goat thieves were killed. Their bodies were also apparently burnt by angry mob in Nasenyi village, Kabwangasi sub-county.

Bukedi North Regional Police Spokesperson, Ms Immaculate Alaso, said the particulars on the National Identification Card recovered at the scene are of Saronyl Huslyini and Muhamud Koire of Kalamira village, Busiki county in Namutumba district.

“It’s alleged that two unknown men riding Motorcycle Registration Number UFQ 023G carrying two suspected stolen goats were chased by a group of boda boda riders. The riders captured them at Nasenyi village. The goat thieves were then lynched and their bodies burnt together with their motorcycle,” SP Alaso said on August 27.

He said the Police team responded well on time and documented the scene. They also had witnesses interviewed and recorded statements.

The Police Publicist said exhibits including two burnt goats, burnt motorcycle, a National ID belonging to one of the deceased persons, were recovered. Police also took the Bodies to Mbale City mortuary pending postmortem.
