The Directorate of Crime Intelligence (DCI) has arrested a witchdoctor, Sulaiman Ssentongo, suspected to have killed two children in Kiboga on Wednesday this week for ritual sacrifice.

After committing the crime, Ssentongo reportedly fled to Kireka, Kira Municipality, in Wakiso District.

Shock engulfed residents of Kasega parish, Kapeke sub-county, when the siblings Sylvia Nantongo aged five and Esther Nakasumba aged two mysteriously went missing. Locals launched a search for the siblings on Wednesday night and their headless bodies were discovered the next day.

Upon finding the bodies, Police in Kiboga launched investigations using sniffer dogs which ended at Ssentongo’s shrine. It was later established that Ssentongo aged 32 had fled the area with the help of his accomplice Maureen Namuleme, aged 41.

Kiboga police quickly alerted DCI and Police’s cyber unit which started tracking the duo’s movement using a mobile phone until they have been arrested hiding in Kireka Township, one of the busiest suburbs of Kampala.

Detectives have revealed that Ssentongo has confessed that he was given transport money to run for safety after committing the crime by Namuleme something which the later denies. The duo has been transported back to Kiboga where they committed the crime.

SP Racheal Kawala, the Wamala regional police spokesperson, has confirmed Ssentongo and Namuleme's arrest. “Our crime intelligence operatives have apprehended two suspects in connection with the double murders that occurred in Kasega parish, Kapeke sub-county, Kiboga district. The suspects have been identified as Sulaiman Ssentongo, 32 years old Namuleme Maureen, 41 years old,” said SP Kawala.

Ssentongo is a resident of Kirinda village, Kasega parish, Kapeke sub-county, in Kiboga district while Namuleme is a resident of Kisingiri cell, Namiremebe Bakuli ward, Rubaga division, Kampala.

SP Kawala confirmed DCI and detectives account that the Ssentongo, is a witch doctor and he was tracked using his own mobile phone. SP Kawala also confirmed that Ssentongo alleges that Namuleme is the person that helped him with money for fleeing the scene.

“The suspects are currently detained at Kiboga CPS for interrogation, bringing the total number of arrests to three. Preliminary findings suggest that on April 3, 2024, at 10:00 PM, two children, were reported missing. Unfortunately, their torsos were discovered on April 4, 2024, in Kirinda village, Kasega parish, Kapeke sub-county,” SP Kawala explained.

However, it is not yet clear whether the children were alone at the time they were abducted by the witchdoctor or there was assistance by a close relative since they went missing in the night hours.  DCI and Kiboga police are hopeful that since Ssentongo and Namuleme have been arrested, they will reveal whoever was involved in the murder to innocent children.
