JInja, (UG):- The Territorial Police in Jinja City are actively investigating a suspected murder incident involving the death of an old woman and her granddaughter whose bodies were found lifeless in their house along Bidco road in Jinja City’s Walukuba Masese Division.

The deceased persons have been identified as Kwagala Kevin, 41, and her granddaughter Kevin Kwagala Junior, 12, all residents of Walukuba – Masese division in Jinja City

Kiira Regional Police Spokesperson, SP James Mubi confirmed the report saying based on police’s preliminary findings, the pair might have been hacked by yet-to-be-identified perpetrators who later abandoned their bodies in the house.

“Kevin Kwagala, 41, and her granddaughter Kevin Kwagala Junior,12, are suspected to have been murdered. Their bodies were found in the house along BIDCO road, Walukuba – Masese division Jinja City,” said SP James Mubi in a Thursday statement.

Mr Mubi explained that the lifeless bodies of the two females were discovered by the deceased’s son who had gone to check on the family on Thursday morning and tried to knock at their door without any response, which prompted him to break the door and access the house before informing police about the sad incident.

“The deceased’s son had gone to check on the family in the morning, he knocked at the door in vain until he broke the door to enable him to gain access to Mzee’s house and subsequently informing us (police),” Mubi added.

The scene of the crime was condoned off by police to avoid contamination as police examined the scene for any possibility of getting relevant information and exhibits of evidential value.
