The Police in Rukiga district is investigating circumstances under which a 49-year-old crime preventer was murdered.

Deus Twinomugisha’s body was found lying along the path to his home. Twinomugisha was a resident of Murambi, Nyarurambi parish in Rwamucucu sub-county in Rukiga district. 

Robert Habaasa, one of the residents told New Vision that the deceased was last seen in Iborozya trading centre in one of the bars. “I saw him in the evening and we exchanged greetings. He has been a friendly man,” said Habaasa.

Joventa Busingye, the deceased’s wife said that she rung him at 11:00pm, but he did not respond.

“When I called him several times without response, I felt something was not right. I moved out to start a search, only to find him lying on the ground. I made an alarm and people gathered to see what had happened,” said Busingye.

John Muhumuza, the Nyarurambi parish internal security officer, said as security operatives, they will miss Twinomugisha’s services, saying he was a committed crime preventer.
