A man in Mbale has blown himself to death with a grenade.
Milton Muyiyi, in his late 40'S blew himself up on Saturday at Nakibiso cell, Mooni ward, Wanale Division in Mbale Municipality.
Ibin Iddi Ssenkumbi, the Eastern Uganda Police Spokesperson, says Muyiyi, a casual laborer at Mbale Garage was seated outside a nearby church when he suddenly blew up the grenade that killed him on the spot.
Ssenkumbi explains that though the matter is being treated as a suicide case, police are investigating the circumstances under which the man acquired the grenade which finished him off.
Police mounted a quick search inside the deceased's mud and wattle house and found bundles of marijuana, and a lap top computer, raising suspicion that the man could have been involved in dubious activities.
Ssenkumbi says exhibits recovered from the man's house will be used in the investigations.
