Sipi Region Police have opened investigations into the circumstances surrounding the death of Kapchorwa district woman councilor.

The 45-year-old Agnes Chebet, a resident of Chekui village in Munalya Sub County was found hanging in her bedroom on Tuesday afternoon.

Rogers Chrispas Taitika, the Sipi Region Police Spokesperson, says the deceased's father visited her at 1:00 pm and left her fine only to return at 2pm and find her hanging in her bedroom.

Chebet has been the LC V Woman councilor for Munalya Sub County for the last two consecutive terms. 

Taitika says they are investigating circumstances surrounding Chebet's death since some wrong people have been killing people and hang their bodies to mislead investigators.

"We want to establish from the husband (Twahiri Chemisi) where he had gone by the time the incident occurred," he said.

According to Taitika, they have handed over the deceased's body to Kapchwora hospital mortuary for postmortem to establish the cause of death.

The deceased's daughter, Anita Chebet, a senior three student of Sipi Secondary school, says her mother was fine when she left home for studies.

URN was unable to speak to Twahiri Chemisi as he wasn't accessible by the time of filing this story.
