Juliet Nankabirwa, who operates a tree nursery in the area, says about nine bodies have been dropped in the area since last year. She notes that they have minimized walking during night hours fearing for their lives. According to Nankabirwa, they often hear school children and women screaming for help from the bad hearted men trying to rape them.
