It has been alleged that Mutumba who had two health facilities at Bamugolodde and Nalubobya and by the time they were killed, had just picked his wife from their health facility at Nalubobya.

However, the Bamugolodde village chairperson, Fenekansi Kimeze, the assailants waylaid the deceased on their way from Manyangwa village and stabbed all of them to death.

Councillor Kalongo Bwanga says the residents are living in much fear following the fact that they do not know the motive of the assailants given the fact that Mutumba and his wife had no grudge with any one in the village.

“We are experiencing a lot of insecurity in this region from the time police closed police posts that included one at Kanumyata and Kaleire. This is the first time we are experiencing this kind of incident, let the responsible people boost our security,” Bwanga said.
