Gen Kasirye Gwanga's sister killed, body dumped in latrine

Police in Kasanda district has recovered the body of a 60-year-old woman dumped in a pit latrine.   

Irene Naggita, a resident of Kitalegelwa village in Nalutuntu sub-county, who is also a sister to retired Maj Gen Kasirye Gwanga went missing from her home several weeks ago.   

Denis Kimuli, son of the deceased, says when he learnt that his mother was missing, they tried to trace for her from known relatives and friends in vain. Kimuli also notes that since the Easter holidays, they were calling her mobile phone but it went unanswered. 

Elizabeth Kasirye, sister to the deceased, notes that Naggita’s character had changed days before she went missing. Kasirye adds that Naggita was one of the organizers of Easter prayers at Kitalegelwa Church of Uganda, but she never turned up on Good Friday.

Wamala regional police spokesperson Norbert Ochom said the neighbours experienced a foul stench from the pit latrine and informed the police. Ochom says that Naggita was killed before she was dumped in the latrine. 

Naggita's body was taken to Mityana general hospital for postmortem before it was handed over to family members for burial. Kasirye Gwanga says that he is still questioning the motive of killing an old woman and then dump the body in a latrine. 

“We have left this matter to police to investigate the matter to its logical conclusion. But we are interested to know why somebody would act like that.” Gwanga said.

It is a pity that we still have abominable characters in our midst who can kill an old lady and dump her body in a pit latrine.

May her soul be at peace.

But I can only imagine the current restlessness in the mind of Gen Kasirye Gwanga.

Jesus, you kill some one and the dump her body in a Latrine, but it is long for to say she was "Killed" around Easter, the body was already bad to make conclusions!

What is going on in Uganda these days? Who is doing this?

If it is FDC like they promised before, they should be help politically responsible.No act of terror must be done by any party. Or is it the gangster boys of Bobi Dog Dingo??

So sad every time the country looses a life through these odious behaviours.

There’s a pattern of foreign behavioural tendencies developing, which, at close examination, cannot be divorced from our open boarders policy!
Can’t something be done by our immigration department?

It is unfortunate that this is an NRM family that seems to continue to pick up very aggravating national news all the time. It is very sad indeed!

Condolences to Mr. Kasirye, you are an upright citizen of Uganda; my thoughts are with you and your immediate family at this difficult time.

I just can't see the motive of this heinous act. Could someone be trying to "provoke" the Brigadier (who has been enjoying a "quiet life" as a farmer) to come out and "utter something" about the current on going political climate, I wonder!

I may not be your chosen commentators whose names always appear under this column but to emphasize my opinion you never published and I will repeat it that foreigners who enter Uganda freely have immensely contributed to massive killings and other crimes.

This is evidenced by the fact that their methods of criminality including murders are not "ugandan".

Just recently a Congolese refugee and his wife some where in Nansana kept the man's mother in the toilet where she was put to sleep and fed.

The woman was only rescued by Ugandans of all tribes who found it abominable and inhuman to treat a human being like that let alone a mother. This was on the news and if you missed it, then blame yourself but you must be fair in choosing what to print without any prejudice.

Agreed, but,

Don't forget Ugandans are not in control, but live under occupation without control of what goes on, so, it's only the owner of Uganda, Museveni, who has the army/police, justice, parliament... to stop inhumanities like this!

As for the open boarders policy, it protects Museveni migrants/refugees catered for by UN/EU in Uganda, which makes the country paradise for Museveni & foreigners, while Ugandans are the enemies to be got rid of, suppressed...!

It's up to Ugandans to take back their country in UNITY, to bring Museveni, UN, EU to reality of situation on the ground for Ugandans, in the country they consider well governed & home for refugees/migrants, while turning blind eyes-deaf ears to oppression/suppression of Ugandans!
