MURDER | DOMESTIC VIOLENCE

Police in Kagadi are holding one suspect on allegations of killing his eight-year-old daughter and burying her secretly. 

The suspect has been identified as Jackson Mbabazi, 39, a resident of Kinyasi, Nyamwezi Parish, Mabira Sub County, Kyenjojo district. He has however been hiding in Kagadi district since he allegedly committed the crime.

Joseph Mugisa, the father-in-law to the suspect, told police that the suspect had earlier confessed that as he was taking the child to the hospital, she died along the way and he decided to keep her body in the forest.

The decomposing body of Grace Musimenta has been recovered in Kagombe central forest reserve near River Muzizi in Nyanseke Muhorro Sub County, Kagadi district, three days after it was buried.

Mbabazi, however, denied the accusations, saying the daughter had been sick by the time she died. He claims that after the child died in the middle of the forest, he decided to keep her body in the forest and go to look for help.

He led an investigation team from Kagadi Central Police Station to the forest, where they recovered the body. Police have allowed the relatives of the deceased to bury the girl, as investigations into the matter are ongoing.

Neighbours say that Mbabazi divorced his wife three years ago and has been staying with his children until this unfortunate incident.

This is the fourth person to die under unclear circumstances in Kagadi in a period of one month.

Lillian Ruteraho, the Kagadi district RDC, says the district is not as insecure as residents allege but attributed the increasing number of murder cases to domestic violence and land wrangles.

She called on the general public to always report cases related to domestic violence and land wrangles that would result in fighting and thus uncalled for murders in the district.
