 Two suspected kidnappers are in custody at Kiruhura police station. They are Alex Asiimwe alias Isaac and Enos Taremwa, both casual laborers in Ruhondwa village in Kyakabunga parish in Nyakasheshera sub-county in Kiruhura district.

They are accused of kidnapping and killing eight-year-old, Ronald Kangume on July 31st, 2019. It is alleged that after kidnapping the minor, the suspects demanded for a ransom of US 100,000 to release him or else they kill him.

    They reportedly contacted the minor’s family using different phone numbers and threatened to kill the kidnap victim unless their demands are met. Samson Kasasira, the Rwizi Region police spokesperson, says the suspects were tracked down and apprehended on Monday evening.  

  He says the suspects led police officers to the bush where they buried the minor’s remains after killing him when they failed to get the ransom.
