A primary four pupil in Isingiro district who went missing a week ago has been found dead. The deceased is 10-year-old Mercy Mbabazi, a pupil of Ruborogota Grean valley primary school in Isingiro district.
Mbabazi disappeared on Monday last week on her way from school. It is alleged that Mbabazi left school with two friends but they were tricked by a stranger who offered them money to go and buy chapatti from Ruborogota trading center and he stayed behind with the deceased.
On their return, the two minors failed to trace their friend prompting them to alert her parents. They launched a manhunt for the pupil only to find her torso yesterday in Ruborogota swamp.
Moses Muzima, the Isingiro District Police Commander, says minor could have been raped before she was killed. Muzima says they have arrested three people in connection to the incident.
