Kabale Police are holding a woman together with her two sons in connection to the death of their step-father. The suspects are 45-year-old Evas Nkwasa and her two sons Isaac Kiiza and Barnet Niwamanya, all residents of Kigarama B of Hamuhambo Ward in Ryakarimira Town Council in Kabale District.  

Nkwasa is suspected to have connived with her sons to kill their stepfather, Bosco Niwagaba. In a phone interview with our reporter, Canon Enock Kazooba, the LC III Chairperson of Ryakarimira Town Council, says Niwagaba was clobbered to death using a hand hoe following a quarrel with his wife over money they had collected from a bar they jointly owned near their home in Kigarama Trading Centre. 

Kazooba says that following a heated fight between the couple that turned bloody, the children rushed in to rescue their mother who had been overpowered by the deceased. He says that Kiiza reportedly picked up a hoe and hit his step father on the head and he collapsed to the ground.

Canon Kazooba says that the deceased’s neighbor identified as Ms Black made an alarm prompting residents to run to his rescue but they found him lying down unconscious. He was rushed to Kabale Regional Referral Hospital from where he was declared dead on arrival.

Kazooba said after notifying Police, he led a group of residents to arrest the suspects but by the time they arrived, Kiiza had taken off.  They apprehended the deceased’s wife and remaining son. 

The deceased’s uncle, Spencer January told our reporter that Nkwasa had in past attempted to kill her husband on several occasions over unknown reasons. Spencer said the deceased has left behind four young children.

The Kigezi Region Police Spokesperson, Elly Maate confirmed the incident but said that he was yet to receive details of the case by the time of filing this report. In a related development, Police is investigating circumstances surrounding the attack on Amon Nuwagaba in his bedroom at Amazon Lodges in Rukungiri town.

It is alleged that Nuwagaba checked in at Amazon lodge on April 15th 2021 around 5pm for a night after paying Shillings 10,000. However, it is alleged that unknown people stormed his room and him on the head with a harmer and vanished without being noticed.

According to a police report, one of the attendants identified as Prossy Kyogabirwe found Nuwagaba’s room locked with a padlock. She initially thought that Nuwagaba had gone for breakfast. She returned later with a spare key and opened the room to change bed sheets for cleaning. 

Kyogabirwe was shocked to find the deceased lying in a pool of blood and immediately informed Herbert tumushabe, the owner of Amazon lodges. Tumushabe also notified police, which visited the scene. The Kigezi Region Police Spokesperson, Elly Maate, says the officers recovered the hammer and rushed the victim to Nyakibare hospital for treatment.

They locked up Tumushabe and Kyogabirwe to help their investigations.
