KYOTERA, UGANDA: Police in Kyotera District are investigating circumstances under which one of their own officers attached to Kalisizo Police Station was found dead in a bathroom on Friday morning.

Charles Rerikayo, 33, who has been a constable driver at the station for the last six months is alleged to have succumbed to heart failure, according to preliminary reports.

Kyotera District Police Commander Hassan Musooba in a Friday police statement said the deceased did not have any health complications before and it was a shock to them that he died suddenly.

“Charles has been very healthy according to the looks as he always cracked jokes with friends. We were however shocked to find him motionless in the bathroom,” ASP Musooba said.

Musooba explained that “the deceased called traffic officers whom he was to drop on the road for work at around 5 am but to their dismay when they called back, he wasn’t picking calls not until they broke the window of his room and found him dead in the bathroom.”

One of the police officers only identified as Sunday told this publication that Charles was humorous which endeared him to many workmates.

“He was very talkative and we liked his jokes. One would think he has been at the station for a long time yet he had not even spent a year,” he said.

A postmortem report from Masaka Regional Referral Hospital indicates that Rerikayo succumbed to heart failure on Wednesday.

The burial for the deceased is expected to be held on Saturday, March 25, at his ancestral home in Adjumani District, Northern Uganda.
