3 Arrested over Isingiro Internal Auditor’s Death

Three people have been arrested in connection with the murder of Isingiro district internal Auditor Moses Gumisiriza.

Gumisiriza 46, a resident of Ilwango village in Kabuyanda sub county Isingiro district was found lying dead this morning at Truth and Justice Bar along Makhansingh Street in Mbarara town.

Detective inspector Jackson Mugisha, the deputy officer in charge of criminal investigations at Mbarara police station says police received an early morning alert on a body which was found locked up in the bar.

Mugisha says police rushed to the crime scene where the body, which does not have any form of physical injury was found covered with a number of empty beer bottles.

Three people including the manager of the Bar Yonasani Tumwesigye and two other employees have since been arrested to guide police investigations.

One of the arrested individuals, Yonasani Tumwesigye, who hails from the same village with the deceased, says he was a drunk who spent countless nights in bars.

But Silver Mwesigwa, the district speaker said Gumisiriza has been one of the dedicated and trusted civil servants in the district.

Mwesigwa says the circumstances of his death must be investigated thoroughly well by police because they cannot believe that he has been killed by alcohol.
