Police has confirmed that Harriet Nantongo Bakiya ,38 who went missing last week has been discovered raped and murdered.
‘‘Yes. It’s true. It’s the body of Nantongo Harriet, wife to Musiba Noah a resident of Kabale’A’ Katabi town council.’’ Said Police spokesman Asan Kasingye.
The deceased body was discovered naked and dumped in a bush in Nkumba Bwaise in Katabi town council Entebbe municipality Wakiso district.
Her death brings the number of women murdered in crude way and in the same manner in Katabi town council to 10 in about 100 days.
A week ago, Nantongo together with her husband left their home for work in the morning and that was the last time her husband last saw her.The Inspector General of Police Kale Kayihura recently said that sacking him will not stop the rise in crime around the country. In an hour-long address to local government leaders at their 23rd annual general meeting held on Saturday in Mubende, Gen Kayihura said he was fed up with the relentless criticism of the police.
“These songs of police this, police that…Kayihura alemeddwa [has failed]. People, okay, Kayihura can be sent to Luzira but I tell you, if you don’t address the problems in society, even if you put [appoint] I don’t know who, [but] whoever you put there, the problems of crime will not be solved,” The Observer quoted Kayihura as having said.
Kayihura and Tumukunde were recently on a collision path with both bush war notables running parallel investigations into the unexplained murders of women in Nansana and Entebbe.
