Residents of Booma in Mbarara City have this morning woken up in shock and grief after finding a lifeless body of a boda boda rider dumped in the compound of Hoima Deputy Resident City Commissioner, Akintori Muhuta.
Akintori Muhuta who is the Deputy Resident City Commissioner for Hoima city hails from Booma in Mbarara City.
Muhuta told www.mknewslink.com that criminals are taking advantage of curfew time to terrorize boda boda riders.
He called upon city council leadership to install street lights in Booma since the area is in total darkness which gives criminals a chance to execute their evil missions.
Judith Katushabe a resident of Booma says that it’s not the first time criminals have killed and dumped boda boda riders in the same area. The resident is appealing to security officers to gear up enforcement in the area.
By the time we filed this story, the body of the deceased was still at Mbarara Regional Referral Hospital pending postmortem.
However, efforts to get a comment from Rwizi Region police spokesperson ASP Samson Kasasira were futile by the time we filed this story since he didn’t respond to our repeated phone calls.
