Police in Nakasongola district are actively pursuing unidentified assailants behind the killing of three family members in an ambush on Monday night. The victims have been identified as Julius Mutimba, 45, his wife Resty Nakayima, 35, who also served as the parish councilor at Kalongo sub-county, and their six-month-old child, all residents of Bamugolodde village. 

Mutimba operated a drug shop at Bamugolodde trading center, while his wife worked at another drug shop in Nalubwobya trading center. Edward Kimbowa, the Vice Chairman of Bamugolodde village, recounted that at approximately 8 pm, Mutimba closed his drug shop and rode his motorcycle registration number UFL 736K to Nalubwobya village to pick up his wife and child. 

Kimbowa explained that on their way back home, the family encountered a roadblock set up by the assailants, where they were stabbed to death. Subsequently, the assailants placed the lifeless body of the child on the road and abandoned the deceased's motorcycle before fleeing the scene.   

Rogers Bwanga Sande, the Nakasongola District Speaker who doubles as the area councilor, said that the assailants specifically targeted the family, suspecting that they may have had inside information about the victims' movements.
