A couple in Manafa district has been arrested for alleged murder. George Sikoli and his lover Farida Munawa were arrested this morning in connection with the murder of 69-year-old, Ahmed Wakuri of Namunyele village, in Khabutola Sub County, Manafa District. Diana Nandaula, the Eastern Uganda Police Spokesperson, says that Wakuri was attacked and killed and his body dumped in a trench, located 100 meters away from his home. Nandaula says Wakuri's body was found with a deep cut on the head and suspicions are rife that he could have been hit with a blunt object. Preliminary investigations show that Bumali Wangokho, a brother to George Sikoli, could have murdered Wakuri. Sikoli has been having an affair with Farida, a wife to the deceased old man. Nandaula says that Wangokho currently on the run, is a prime suspect in the murder.
