MAN WHO CARRIED HUMAN HEAD TO PARLIAMENT UNDER INVESTIGATION OVER MASAKA KILLING, TO FACE MURDER CHARGES AS HIS IDENTITY IS REVEALED
By Mulengera Reporter
Police say they will charge a man they have identified as Joseph Nuwashaba from Bushenyi District in connection with the murder of a person from Masaka District. Nuwashaba, who is 22 years of age and a resident of Kizinda in Ishaka-Bushenyi Municipality, had attempted to smuggle a human head, well wrapped and concealed in a bag, to Parliament as a gift to Speaker Rebecca Alitwala Kadaga. But Parliament’s security officers would later arrest him after it emerged that the gift he had packed was a human head.
Now, Police has extended its investigations to a murder that recently happened in Kijabweni in Masaka where a child aged between five and eight years was beheaded, head taken away and torso left behind.
Police’s Criminal Investigations and Crime Intelligence Directorate (CID) Spokesperson Charles Mansio Twine has confirmed that police in Masaka received a report of murder of unknown kid that was headless (torso) in Kijabweni.
“The two separate body parts are being examined by our medical experts to establish whether they bear the same DNA and upon proof, the suspect will be charged of murder,” Twine said.
Unlike Nuwashaba who carried a human head, previous protests against MPs, mostly against greed and corruption, involved pigs, some of them painted yellow, the colour of the ruling National Resistance Movement (NRM), which commands a huge majority in Parliament. Over the years, the party has been criticized for pushing through bills, such as the age limit removal bill, which some Ugandans were opposed to.
As usual, Uganda Police, through CID’s Twine, has condemned “such incomprehensible acts of crime, and we wish to assure the general public that the investigations are vigorously being undertaken to ensure that the perpetrators are taken to Court.”
