28 year old Vincent Rwabuhihi, a hardware shop operator in Bukomero town council, was found dead in his house in Kyaterekera village on Monday afternoon. His body lay in a pool of blood.

Herbert Muhangi, the Kyankwanzi district Police Commander said Rwabuhihi’s body was found by residents lying on his bed with a deep cut to the neck.

Rwabuhihi, also a student at Makerere University, lived alone. His father Faustino Kaliisa, who is also the village chairman, revealed that his son had sold 40 heads of cattle on Sunday and obtained 40 million shillings.

Kaliisa said the murder could have been perpetuated by someone or persons who were after the money. 

However, DPC Muhangi said nothing appeared to have been stolen from the house by the assailants. Investigations to ascertain the motive of the murder and track down the suspects are already underway.

The murder comes barely two months after the brutal murder of Henry Kayira, a prominent businessman in Kiboga town who was shot dead on July 10. Kayira was the proprietor of Namutinde Investments Limited and an agent of Mukwano group of companies in Kiboga district.
