Bodaboda men kill two women
RUKUNGIRI-Two women were on Friday lynched by bodaboda cyclists in Bwambara sub-county for allegedly bewitching a bodaboda cyclist. The district Police chief, Stanley Tibakanya, identified the deceased as Anna Kagambirwe and Evas Rwakacaka. Tibakanya said although no arrests had been made, the Police were investigating the matter. A resident said Kagambirwe killed a cyclist only identified as Amos because he had been having an affair with her daughter, a Senior Three student at Bwambara Secondary School. Kagambirwe had allegedly threatened to kill Amos if he did not stop the relationship. Amos reportedly did not heed the warning and she bewitched him. After burying Amos on Friday, the cyclists descended on Kagambirwe and Rwakacaka.
