A section of Nsozi residents in Kyangwali sub-county, Kikuube district have decried the increasing number of murder cases, calling on government to establish a police post and rectify the menace of thugs who have terrorised the area.

The residents' complaints follow the murder of five people in the area recently, including Celestino Katusabe, Andrew Bembereza, Chris Baguma, Mary Tuhaise and Julius Tibenda with the latest 48-year-old man in Nsozi, Kyangwali sub-county in Kikuube district who was discovered murdered and body his body dumped in Bugoma Central Forest Reserve.

The Body of Andrew Bembereza 48, was discovered in Bugoma forest in Wairagaza-Kabwoya sub-county with bruises and deep injuries on the neck.

Residents say suspects arrested over murder are always released.

They want the Police to ensure the suspects are taken to court for serious punitive actions as a deterrent condition.

Clementina Uwingambire, the wife of the deceased said the suspects arrested must not be released asking the Police to hunt for other suspects to be brought to book.

Julius Hakiza, the Albertine police spokesperson, said erecting a Police post at Nsozi is demand driven and a process that requires consultations with higher authorities.

On releasing suspects, Hakiza said it is a constitutional right for a suspect to be released on police bond as investigations into the matter continue and that it does not mean one has been set free.

He noted that it is not police that kills people but fellow residents of the area which must be investigated thoroughly by police.

He called for calm challenging local council leaders and community members to be on the lookout and vigilant in curbing criminality in the area.
