A 50-year-old man has taken the decisin to end his life by hanging following the death of his nephew.

The double-tragedy occurred last night at Bwami village, Kabarungi parish, in Lwengo town council.   The deceased person has been identified as Emmanuel Kamanzi.

Kamanzi's nephew, George Mukasa succumbed to a strange ailment which he has been battling for three days.   Although fellow residents suspect Coronavirus Disease, it has not been confirmed by the health authorities.    

According to residents, Mukasa was Kamanzi’s only family member and the breadwinner. But Jamiru Mpiima, one of the neighbours says that suicide was not a good option for Kamanzi.

Cue out:……… abali mulumbe wano.”//   

The two dead men will apparently be missed for diverse reasons. Anthony Luwaga, the Lwengo LCIII Councilor, says Mukasa and Kamanzi were his good colleagues and also his staunch supporters.

Cue out:……… ebyomugaso eli eggwanga.”//   

The councilor appealed to the residents to remain calm as they wait for police to investigate the matter.     

//Cue in: “Era mungeri yeemu…………….  

Cue out:……… ekizibu kino kyebalimu.”//

By press time, police had not arrived at the scene of crime.   However, ASP Peter Akampurira, the District Police Commander (DPC), says that they are going to investigate the matter to establish cause of Mukasa and Kamanzi’s death.
