LAND WRANGLES: 5 suspects arrested over murder in Rukungiri

RUKUNGIRI- The Police in Rukungiri have in their custody 5 people over the murder of a 63-year-old man suspected to have been killed by his relatives.

Kigezi Regional Police Spokesman Elly Maate has confirmed that the 5 people arrested are all relatives of Twebaze Yoramu, a resident of Nyaruhungye village in Kikongi Parish in Bwambara Sub County in Rukungiri District.

Maate said that Twebaze has been having a long standing domestic wrangle with his family over land issues after his son identified as Ndyabagye Ivan demanded that he should be given a share where to build his own house.

It’s reported that it took the intervention of the Area LC 1 and LC 2 Chairmen to compel the old man to give the son a piece of land where he could build a house.

However, it’s reported that the deceased was last seen on Sunday Sept 13th 2020 at Ngabi home together with Ezera Niwagaba and Kishaija Stanley but yesterday morning, the dead body of Twebaze was recovered in a eucalyptus tree forest along the way to his home.

This prompted the Police to arrest his wife Kwarija Slivia, his son Ndyabagye and the 3 men Ngabi, Nuwagaba and Kisheija whom he was last seen with the previous day.

Maate said that a case of murder by strangulation was registered at Rukungiri District Police Station under reference number CRB 1713/2020 to help in investigations.
