Just weeks after a herdsman in Mbale killed his colleague using a grazing stick, another vengeful cattle keeper has claimed life of a colleague with a single punch drinking- joint in Rwempwanyi B village, in Lwengo district, on Monday.

The victim, Robert Rwebasira died on the spot, according to Police. His body was recovered at the roadside a few meters from the crime scene.

Police have arrested three suspects (including two herdsmen and a bar owner) from the bar where the bitter argument started before, they were thrown out by management.
