IN RUBIRIZI AND BUSHENYI—-
Greater Bushenyi sub-region has become a death trap to the extent that currently every resident lives in extreme fear. A third person in one week was kidnapped on Friday night as he was entering his house at 10:00pm.
Mr. Savio Ariho, an agricultural officer at Ryeru sub-county in Rubirizi district was kidnapped on Friday night as he entered his house in Rubirizi town council.
According to his relative Paul Turyamureeba Kahiigi a former Bushenyi district LC5 candidate, the victim was kidnapped at 10:00pm at the door of his house and injected him with cholophome, beat and dumped him in Nyakasharu town. He was discovered at 3:00am Friday night.
Ariho whose face is deformed and even lost some of his teeth is admitted at BB Clinic in Ishaka town. “I failed to recognize my relative whom I have known since my childhood. Greater Bushenyi is terrible. I don’t know the use of the police we have in the sub-region” Paul Kahiigi wondered.
The Rubirizi incident follows two others in Bushenyi town this week where Tycoon John Rwamutwe Headex was kidnapped on Tuesday night and found dead in his vehicle in Ibanda municipality.
Another one was on Friday evening Mr. Sivertoli Ngabirano a court clerk at Bushenyi chief magistrates’ court was kidnapped from Bushenyi town beaten and dumped at nine miles on Mbarara-Bushenyi road. He is admitted at Mbarara regional referral hospital.
When www.mknewslink.com editor asked Bushenyi DPC Damiano Katwesiime about the kidnap of Ngabirano yesterday evening, but surprisingly he said he doesnot know anything about it. He said that he just learnt of it when he saw a story and photo on www.mknewslink.com website. “You should tell his relatives to report a case to us” DPC said.
