Rukungiri Police have impounded four trucks carrying more than 400 pieces of timber valued at 25 million Shillings. The impounded timber, from Butimba Wood Centre, is believed to have been cut illegally from Imaramagambo National Forest in Bwambara Sub County in Rukungiri district.
According to police, the deceased’s body had multiple cuts on the head and neck, an indication that the assailants could have used a sharp object to end her life. He says the prime suspect is the deceased’s brother, Cleophas Twinamatsiko, a business man in Kampala.
Moses Nanoka, the Rukungiri District Police commander, says the suspects were arrested after investigations showed that they led the attack on Ahereza. Nanoka says the suspects are being held at Rukungiri police station pending their appearance in court.
According to Nuwagaba, Matsiko sustained injuries and was rushed to Nyakibare hospital but was referred to Mbarara Regional Referral Hospital where he breathed his last on September 27, 2019. Nuwagaba says angry residents led by Matsiko’s relatives raided his home on Sunday evening and torched three houses.
The letter contains death threats directed at Rukungiri Chief Magistrate, Moses Kule Lubangula, Rukungiri District Police Commander, Moses Nanoka, two prominent lawyers, Mark Mwesigye of M/s Mark Mwesigye & Company Advocates and Jonathan Bwagi of Bwagi & Company Advocates.
