Unidentified person has stabbed to death 25- year- old Vincent Duhimbaze, a 3rd year student of Kampala International University. Duhimbaze was stabbed on Boxing Day, at Mubano hotel in Kisoro Town, before he was dumped in a beans garden behind the hotel.
 
 
He was found by residents who heard him crying for help and rushed him to Kisoro District Hospital, where he was pronounced dead on arrival. The management of Mubano hotel, where Duhimbaze went for an outing, has declined to comment on the matter. Mubano hotel belongs to Philemon Mateke, the Minister for Regional Cooperation.
 
 
Jonathan Nsabimana, who attended a dance party at Mubano hotel, says he heard people shouting only to be told that one of the guests had been stabbed. Nsabimana says it was until this afternoon when he received confirmation that someone had been killed at the hotel.
 
 
Abbey Ngako, the Kisoro District Police Commander says they have launched investigations into the matter. Preliminary investigations show that Duhimbaze clashed with another patron over a girl, whose identity has been withheld by Police.
 
Simon Tuyisenge has been a friend to the deceased. Tuyisenge told URN that he is saddened by the death of his former school mate at Kigezi College Butobere in Kabale.
 
According to Tuyisenge, a week would hardly go by without him hearing from his friend. Tony Muhire, another friend of the deceased says it hurts that Duhimbaze will not be able to see 2016 and complete his course at university.
 
Duhimbaze's body will be laid to rest at his ancestral home in Kanyamegeri village in Chihe parish in Nyakinama sub county of Kisoro district on Monday.
