Witch Doctor, Son Arrested Over Neighbor's Death

Balimanya is reported to have exhumed the remains of Masasiro's brother, Patrick Walimbwa, who died in 2002 for rituals on Monday night. This prompted Masasiro to engage in a fierce brawl with Balimanya, who allegedly connived with Keyala to hit him in the head to death.
Police in Jinja city are holding Grace Balimanya, a renowned witch doctor, and his son, Aggrey Keyala, over the death of their neighbor, Nasur Masasiro, 60. The two spent the night at Kiira East Central police station.

Balimanya is reported to have exhumed the remains of Masasiro's brother, Patrick Walimbwa, who died in 2002 for rituals on Monday night. This prompted Masasiro to engage in a fierce brawl with Balimanya, who allegedly connived with Keyala to hit him in the head to death. An autopsy conducted at the Jinja Regional Referral hospital confirmed that Masasiro succumbed to a blood clot after being hit with a sharp object in the head.

Masasiro dismisses the allegations against him as baseless, which he blames on other traditional healers in the area. Kiira Region police spokesperson, James Mubi says that detectives introduced sniffer dogs at the scene of the crime which led them to Balimanya's home but they found it deserted. 

Mubi notes that police recovered exhibits comprising suspected human remains from the scene of the crime and Balimanya's home. He says that efforts are underway to submit the exhibits to the government's analytical laboratory for further analysis before the suspects appear in court.
