Mob lynches Rukungiri murder suspect

RUKUNGIRI- The Police in Rukungiri are investigating circumstances under which two people died as a result of cutting and mob justice at Kabyooya cell Kazindiiro Parish in Bugangari Subcounty Rukungiri district.

Information obtained by this online publication, It’s alleged that today the deceased Ezra Owamukama aged 15 went to dig with two of his other younger siblings.

While there, a lunatic known as Rwakaliba Turinawe 48 of the same address went around at about noon and greeted Ezra who never responded. Turinawe then got closer armed with a hoe and hacked him thrice on the head severely bruising the victim who fell down unconscious.

According to Elly Maate the Kigezi Region Police spokesman, Turinawe fled the crime scene and the victim Ezra was subsequently rushed to Nyakibale hospital but unfortunately he died on the way.

Maate adds that after the bad news of Ezra’s death, an angry mob hunted for Turinawe and lynched him to death. Both scenes were visited by police and the 2 bodies were taken to Rwakabengo health center 3 mortuary pending post mortem.

“Any lunate should be taken to hospitals for mental check or be kept on look out by the relatives so that such crimes are dealt with. Also the children must not at any time move alone but rather with the help of their parents or older people,” IP Maate said.

Three suspects including Winnie Kembabazi, Jack Twijukye and Ronald Turyayongyerwa were picked for questioning as Police investigations take course under ref RRI CRB 1810/2020 and 1811/2020 respectively at Rukungiri Police station.
