Irene Najjita, a young sister to Rtd Maj Gen Kasirye Ggwanga has been murdered.
Najjita’s body was recovered on Thursday by Police in Kassanda. She went missing two weeks ago.
Wamala region police spokesperson Norbert Ochom said the deceased’s body was recovered in a pit- latrine at her home in Kitalegerwa Village, Nalutuntu Sub County.
“We learnt about Najjita’s disappearance two weeks ago after her relatives reported a case of missing person at Kakungube police post in Kassanda District. We immediately started our investigations. Her body was found in a pit- latrine at her home. The latrine was full of ashes at its edge. It is suspected that someone had been pouring ashes every day to conceal evidence,” said Ochom.
Gen Ggwanga, who rushed to the scene, tasked police to investigate the case and apprehend his sister’s killers.
“She didn’t have a grudge with anybody and we are surprised that thugs took her life in such a brutal manner. We want the police to thoroughly investigate and tell us what the intention of the killers was.”
