Maj Gen Kasirye Gwanga’s sister Irene Naggita, a resident of Kitalegelwa village in Nalutuntu sub-county, has been found dead and dumped in a pit latrine. The 60-year-old woman went missing from her home several weeks ago.
Elizabeth Kasirye, sister to the deceased, notes that Naggita’s character had changed days before she went missing. Kasirye adds that Naggita was one of the organizers of Easter prayers at Kitalegelwa Church of Uganda, but she never turned up on Good Friday.
Wamala regional police spokesperson Norbert Ochom said the neighbors experienced a foul stench from the pit latrine and informed the police. Ochom says that Naggita was killed before she was dumped in the latrine.
Naggita’s body was taken to Mityana general hospital for a postmortem before it was handed over to family members for burial. Kasirye Gwanga says that he is still questioning the motive of killing an old woman and then dumps the body in a latrine.
“We have left this matter to the police to investigate the matter to its logical conclusion. But we are interested to know why somebody would act like that.” Gwanga said.
