Kakumiro District | THE BLACK EXAMINER | A man who had gone missing in Kakumiro has turned up dead. The deceased has been identified as Yoram Kihereza, 56, a resident of Kyakijuuto village in Kisiita sub-county.

Kihereza’s disappearance raised concern after he went missing from his home on Friday last week under unclear circumstances. Worried about his absence, his family promptly reported the matter to Kakumiro police, who, along with local residents, initiated a search operation.

However, the search ended on Sunday evening at around 4 p.m. when Kihereza’s lifeless body was found lying in a maize plantation in the same area. Ruth Komushani, the deceased’s wife, revealed that her husband had left home without informing them where he was headed.


She says that the sudden loss of her husband has left the entire family in shock. Julius Hakiza, the Albertine region police spokesperson, says that the police promptly retrieved the body and transported it to Kisiita Health Center III for a postmortem examination.

Upon examination, the body exhibited signs of bruising on the neck, suggesting that Kihereza might have been strangled to death by his assailants. Investigations into the incident are currently underway.
