A man in Kikuube district has been brutally killed while attempting to save his 16-year-old sister from getting married.

The deceased has been identified as Bruno Tumwejukye 35, a resident of Kiyembe Village in Kabwoya sub-county.

It is alleged that the deceased’s’ young sister disappeared from their home last week and later, her family received information that she was married to Peter in a neighbouring village.

Tumwejukye stormed the man’s home yesterday and ordered the sister to vacate the house immediately to the annoyance of the man, who instead picked a hand hoe and hit his supposed brother-in-law ending his life instantly.

John Mary Tibabyenda, the village chairperson who responded to an alarm sounded by Tumwejukye says though he rushed to save his life, he discovered he had already died by the time he arrived and his lifeless body was lying in a pool of blood. He immediately notified Kikuube police.

In an interview with journalists today, Julius Hakiza the Albertine Region Police Spokesperson revealed that the suspect fled to an unknown destination after committing the act but police are hunting for him.

Francis Twesige MuKooto, the Kabwoya LCIII Chairperson condemned the act calling upon police to speed up the hunt for the suspect so that he can be charged accordingly.
