Hoima District | THE BLACK EXAMINER | Police in Hoima is holding two people in connection to the murder of two people in Rwobunyonyi, Buraru Sub County in Hoima district.

In February this year, two people met their death at the hands of angry Hoima residents for allegedly conniving with a land grabber.

The angry residents of Rwobunyonyi, Kirindasojo, and Kihohoro in Buraru sub-county lynched Frank Musabe and Sam Kakooza, both residents of Rwobunyonyi village on February 20, 2023 accusing them of collaborating with Fred Mugamba, a tycoon in Hoima city who wants to grab their land.

The more than 2,000 residents are feuding with Mugamba over 810 hectares of land covering three villages. However, the land residents insist that the contested land belongs to them since they have occupied it since the 1940s.

They questioned how Mugamba who is not even a resident of the area acquired the land.

Now, the Albertine Region Police Publicist Julius Allan Hakiza says since then, police have been hunting for the accused until early this week when they were arrested.

Hakiza has also refuted allegations that the suspects whose identities he could not disclose for fear of jeopardizing police investigations were picked up for allegedly resettling on the disputed land saying this is a baseless allegation.

Hakiza says they duo will be arraigned in court to answer charges of murder.
