Our reporter today visited the scene where former Buyende District Police Commander  (DPC) Muhammad Kirumira met his death (after failing to meet wife Mariam who wasn’t home) and discovered shocking information.

One of the eyewitnesses, a metal wielder whose workshop is close to the scene where Kirumira was gunned down told the Grapevine that one of the assailants who killed the maverick police officer was dressed in a white coloured robe also known as ‘Kanzu’ while the other was dressed in a black jacket.

The two were moving on a bodaboda which parked next to Kirumira’s car.

Another eyewitness who was just steps away from the crime scene told this website that when Kirumira’s car parked at a mobile money Kiosk, two men they never suspected to be hit-men approached his car riding on a bodaboda, the one dressed in a ‘kanzu’ moved to the backside of the deceased’s car while the other in the jacket moved straight in front of the car.

He added that they soon heard bullets and they all took cover while some residents ran for dear lives, they did not realize at first that it was Kirumira being gunned down. The assailants who was wearing a ‘kanzu’ jumped back to the bodaboda, kick started it then the one wearing the jacket jumped on it and they sped off.

The eyewitness says that the killers executed their mission in a duration of two Minutes.

A mother has been convicted of abusing her 3-year-old daughter in Britain’s first successful prosecution for female genital mutilation.

The 37-year-old Ugandan woman was found guilty Friday at London’s Central Criminal Court. The mother isn’t being named to protect her child’s identity,

She claimed her daughter suffered an accidental injury, but jurors concluded the child had been cut deliberately.

Metropolitan Police Detective Chief Inspector Ian Baker said the girl “was subjected to horrific abuse” but made a good recovery.

However, the woman told court the baby “fell on metal and it ripped her private parts” while trying to get a biscuit in August 2017.

Judge Philippa Whipple said a lengthy prison term is in store at the woman’s March 8 sentencing.
