FIVE people have been murdered over the weekend in the central region, according to the area Police spokesman, Moses Kafeero. Three of the murders involved disputes over land, with Kiboga topping the list, Kafeero said.

He identified one of the victims as Charles Kigongo of Bbulamazzi in Muwanga sub-county in Kiboga district. He was shot and hacked to death on Friday.

Preliminary investigations showed that the murder stemmed from a land wrangle but no one has been arrested yet.

On the same day, Christopher Mutalemwa of Kasanja in Gayaza parish was also found dead. His brother, Ddingira Tibitendwa, with whom he had a long-standing land row, is on the run.

Kafeero said in Mukono, a porter, Johnson Rabban, was being held at Lugazi police station following the death of his brother, Kenneth Kyato, after they had a night quarrel.

Baggagga Kajamali was also being held over the murder of his brother, Hakkim Kajamali. Kafeero said Hakkim died in Kawolo Hospital following a Saturday fight with his older brother.

Meanwhile, the Rapid Response Unit has arrested a businessman over a false kidnap.

Joseph Nsubuga, a resident of Kiwaatule in Kampala, went into hiding after failing to respond to a Police bond over illegally confining his tenant.

The Police spokesperson, Judith Nabakooba, told journalists yesterday that Nsubuga hid at his brother’s house in Mutundwe.

Nabakooba said they tracked the wife’s phone and discovered that they were communicating.

Nsubuga faked another kidnap in which he was tied up and dumped in Buwenge in Jinja district, where he was ‘rescued’ and taken to the Police. Nabakooba said Nsubuga apologised over the circus.
