THE body of Richard Aceda, a Uganda Peopleâ€™s Congress (UPC) party official in Kitgum district, was on Monday found half-buried in a potato garden.
Richard Aceda, the UPC branch finance secretary and a member of the party district executive, was found with a deep cut on the back of the head with the brain spilling out.
A security official, Alfred Omara, told New Vision that the body was found near the former Labuje IDP camp in Layamo sub-county, in a potato garden belonging to Jonathan Olworo, the LC1 chairman of Town Central ward.
Former UPC Kitgum district chairman, Luwum Daramoi, said Aceda was last seen on Friday at his daughterâ€™s home in Corner Mission, located near Labuje.
â€œHe had visited his daughter and on Friday evening, he informed her that he was going to the home of Luka Nyeko to attend his victory party,â€ Daramoi said. When asked why the daughter did not report about the fatherâ€™s disappearance to authorities, she said she thought that her father had returned to his home in Corner Alango, a town suburb.
