Kabale tailor committed over alleged murder of his two girlfriends

KABALE DISTRICT | THE BLACK EXAMINER  – In a recent development at the Kabale Chief Magistrates Court, Denis Arinaitwe, a 22-year-old tailor residing in Kirigime Ward, Southern Division of Kabale Municipality, has been committed to the High Court for trial. The charges against him involve the alleged killing of a second-year student at Kabale University, Sarah Naturinda, and the shooting death of a 23-year-old female police officer, Caroline Komugisha.

According to the prosecution, led by Kabale Senior State Attorney Raymond Mwesigwa Mugisha, the incidents occurred on March 19, 2023. Sarah Naturinda’s lifeless body was discovered in her rented room in Kamukira Cell, Mwanjari Ward, Kabale Municipality. Subsequently, Arinaitwe reportedly went to Kabale Police Barracks in Central Division, where he fatally shot Caroline Komugisha, who was also believed to be his romantic partner.

Mwesigwa informed the court that investigations into both murders have been completed, and he requested the suspect’s commitment to the High Court for further proceedings. Responding to the request, Kabale Chief Magistrate Rachel Tabaruka explained that her court lacked jurisdiction in this matter, leading to the decision to transfer the case to the High Court.
