Police in Hoima district are holding a 50 year old man on allegations
of murdering his wife and secretly burying the body behind their home.

Kigorobya sub-county is accused of murdering his wife identified as
Tophus Kugonza 46, a primary school teacher at Kijonjomi primary
Ezira Esiko, the criminal investigations officer at Hoima central
police station told mknewslink.com that the deceased went
missing from her home in Kigorobya on 9th April not until on Friday
this week when her body was discovered buried behind their house.
He said the deceased’s relatives had reported a case of missing
relative at Kigorobya police post on Thursday and decided to mount a
