Police in Rubanda has mounted a search for Alex Byarugaba, the head teacher of Burolero primary school in Rubanda town council who allegedly murdered a businessman last night.
Kigezi Regional Police Spokesperson Elly Maate told Howwe.Biz in a phone call, that while at Standard Hotel and Bar in Rubanda Town council at around 11:00pm last night, Byarugaba hit Roland Tukakyungura a resident of Mizinga cell in Nyamabare parish in Ikumba Sub County in Rubanda district with a beer bottle on the head. This was following a misunderstanding.
Tukakyungura according to Moreen Owembabazi, the proprietor of the Hotel, started bleeding seriously from the head and the ears before all of them left the bar.
The victim was however found lying dead in Kagunga trading Centre Murole town council around 07:00 am this morning, and the body was taken to Kabale Regional Referral Hospital where it is awaiting postmortem.
Preliminary investigations indicate that Tukakyungura succumbed to over bleeding. Maate has advised members of the public to settle such scores amicably with the help of local leaders instead of killing one another.
“Developing a misunderstanding at any time, at any place does not call for personal action. The best is to report to local leaders or relevant offices so that it is handled amicably. As I talk, efforts are underway for the suspect to be apprehended, brought to book and charged accordingly” Maate says.
