A Kyambogo University student is in trouble after Police in Kampala arrested him on suspicion of killing his former teacher, Emmanuel Mugarura.
The suspect is Robert Asiimwe and he was arrested after the driver of a car he had hired to reportedly collect garbage; became suspicious of the package that he was directed to take to a dumping site. The driver however tipped the police which established that the alleged garbage was a human corpse, wrapped in polyethene material.
Patrick Onyango, the Kampala Metropolitan police spokesperson said Asiimwe confirmed that the deceased was Emmanuel Mugarura, his former teacher at St Charles Lwanga School in Bushenyi District who visited him two days earlier but suddenly died in his room.
But according to scene of crime officers and first responders, Mugarura’s body had bruises, an indicator that he could have been a victim of strangulation. Onyango said police are now trying to establish what could have happened before and during Mugarura’s stay at Asiimwe’s home.
