Mob Kills Two Suspected Motorcycle Thieves in Kayunga

Kayunga District | THE BLACK EXAMINER | The Kayunga District Police are currently investigating the deaths of two unidentified men who were allegedly killed by an enraged mob on suspicion of motorcycle theft. The incident occurred on Friday, September 15, in Namakandwa Village, Kangulumira Sub County, Kayunga District.

According to Kayunga District Police Commander Rosette Sikahwa, the duo was accused of stealing a motorcycle from Buikwe District and was pursued by an angry mob until they were intercepted in Kayunga while attempting to escape with the stolen vehicle.

Upon capture, the mob brutally beat the suspects to death and set one of their bodies on fire. When the police arrived at the scene, one of the bodies had been burned beyond recognition.

Although the identities of the deceased are still unverified, they are estimated to be between 30 and 40 years old. However, relatives of the deceased claim it was a case of mistaken identity. They argue that the motorcycle’s registration number, which the mob believed had been stolen by the duo, was slightly different from the one the deceased was riding.

Sikahwa mentioned that the police were actively searching for the stolen motorcycle, and details surrounding the incident were still unclear as of press time.

In a related incident, the police are also investigating the death of a 19-year-old casual laborer named Andrew Muhirwe, who was found dead in his bed in Kaazi, Kayunga Sub County. Muhirwe reportedly went to bed after watching football without complaining of any illness. His body has been taken to Kayunga Regional Referral Hospital for a postmortem examination.
