Yahaya Kamulegeya, a resident of Kashumba village in Kashumba Sub County Isingiro district has committed suicide over a protracted family wrangle. 50-year-old Kamulegeya was found dangling on a rope in a banana plantation next to his home on Wednesday morning.  

His neighbors told URN that the deceased has been embroiled in a wrangle with his family including two wives and several children over property.  Kiiza Ssalongo, the LC I chairperson Kashumba village says the deceased told him a few days ago how he was stressed by the persistent demands by his family to share the available piece of land. 

Kiiza says that they made several attempts to reconcile the deceased with his family in vain. Silvano Mugisha, the LC III chairperson of Kashumba Sub County blames the death of Kamulegeya on the failure by police to settle the family wrangles in time.

Kashumba says many land wrangles in his area have dragged on for years, which may lead to more deaths. In match this year, four members of the same family were shot dead in the neighboring Rugaaga Sub County over suspected land wrangles.
