One suspect has been arrested by Police in connection with the killing of an elderly man, Edinand Magumba, resident of Butangala village, in Mayuge district, following his unsuccessful attempt to steal three hens at a neighbor’s home.
According to police, Magumba broke into one resident’s house and took three hens from the kitchen at around one o’clock, in the middle of the night yesterday.
However, the owner of the home who has not yet been identified was able to make an alarm that alerted the neighbours who apprehended Magumba and told him to go and report himself to the nearby police.

Police spokesperson Fred Enanga says that police was able to respond to the situation by 7 am in the morning but unfortunately found that Magumba has already passed on due to the injuries brought to him through the harsh beating. Fred Enanga on death;….
