Robert Asiimwe a prime suspect in the murder of Emmanuel Mugarura a brother of Christian instruction has opened up to detectives on circumstances under which the latter died.
Mugarura 46 was a superior general of Brothers of St Charles Lwanga locally known as Bakarooli of Kyotera district.
On July 3rd 2019 police arrested Asiimwe after he hired a truck to dispose of Mugarura’s lifeless body which he had covered in tarpaulin.
Upon his arrest, Asiimwe was taken to special investigations department in Kireka Kampala for intense interrogation.
Officials briefed about the case say Asiimwe whose tuition was being paid by Mugarura confessed to killing his benefactor whom he said had sexually abused him for many years.
“Right from secondary school, now up to university I was being subjected to sexual abuse because he paid my school fees. A time came and the situation was unbearable, he refused to let me go and we fought. That’s how he died,”Asiimwe told detectives.
Asiimwe’s confession has since gained credence after the deceased’s mother said his son ( Mugarura) at one time insisted on sleeping in the same bed with his colleague Asiimwe
“My son was helping many children but among them he was very close to Asiimwe who was like his real brother. The last time they were here for Easter I tried to prepare a separate bed for his visitor but he refused saying is his brother, they would sleep in his bed together,”Mugarura’s mother told mourners.
