Body of Unidentified Man Retrieved from Wetland in Luuka

The body of the man was first sighted this morning by rice farmers who noticed it sailing through the water drainage channels across their gardens. The Police have since retrieved the body and taken it to Kiyunga Health Centre IV mortuary for postmortem.
Police in Busoga North are investigating the circumstances under which an unidentified middle-aged man lost his life and how his body ended up in Bukyamata wetland, in Bulongo sub-county, Luuka district.

The body of the man was first sighted this morning by rice farmers who noticed it sailing through the water drainage channels across their gardens. The Police have since retrieved the body and taken it to Kiyunga Health Centre IV mortuary for postmortem.

Ruth Aliyinza, a women's affairs secretary in Bukyamata village says that the deceased is not known within their area. She, as well as several other residents, suspect that the man was killed from another location before being dumped within this wetland as a coverup for the crime.

"We have a village register and we have since alerted all family heads within the area about the body, but none of them could identify him," she says.

Busoga North Police Spokesperson, Michael Kasadha says that the search for the deceased's family is ongoing. He says police are also following leads on what could have caused the death.

Meanwhile, the Police in Busoga East are investigating the circumstances under which a 35-year-old, Rachel Mbeiza, was electrocuted to death in her garden.

It is reported that Mbeiza, a resident of Katonte village, in Baitambogwe sub-county was gardening when she fell on the ground and died instantly. But naked underground hydroelectricity power lines were found beside Mbeiza's body.

Busoga East police spokesperson Diana Nandawula says that preliminary reports indicate that illegal underground electricity power connections were planted in Mbeiza's garden without her knowledge and after consistently weakening due to heavy rains, they sparked off and struck her dead while in the garden.
