Rukiga District: 60-Year-Old Man Murdered And Body Chopped

Rukiga District police recently launched an investigation into circumstances surrounding the death of a 60-year-old man. Apparently, the deceased’s body was discovered after his killers took off with a few of his body parts.

Mr. Elly Maate, the Kigezi region police spokesperson identified the deceased as Michael Kyarugahi. Michael has been a resident of Rushebeya Cell, Rwamucucu Sub County in Rukiga District.

“Ms Gorreti Katushabe, the wife of the deceased alleged that on March 2 at around 14:00hrs, Mr Kyarugahi left home to Rushebeya trading center for his social hours and never returned home. The next day early morning she reported the same to the area local council chairperson, Mr Aggrey Bakahya, who mobilized the community members and they conducted a search but in vain,” Mr Maate said.

He added that the search team resumed the work on Saturday and that is when they discovered the body of the deceased.

They apparently found him floating in a swamp just a few meters away from Rushebeya trading center.

“The search team notified police who visited the scene and retrieved the body. The body was found with some parts that included the head and right arm missing. The body was taken to Kabale regional referral hospital for postmortem,” Mr Maate said.

He also revealed that they registered a case of murder by cutting at Rukiga Police Station. They also started inquiries into the case as the manhunt for the suspects also kicked off.

According to Mr. Zadock Kamusiime, the Rukiga deputy Resident District Commissioner the incident is a unique one. He said this has not been a common thing in the area.

“I am working with the local leaders in Rwamucucu Sub County and the neighboring villages to establish the motive behind such a gruesome murder. Security information so far gathered indicates that the deceased was a man of the people that had no single conflict or grudge with anybody. We call upon anybody with useful information pertaining to this murder to volunteer it to the police for thorough investigations,” Mr Kamusiime said.
