Another Nkumba University student murdered

Another student of Nkumba University has been killed in his hostel room at Nkumba in Katabi town council. 26-year-old Godfrey Kateu was found dead in his room at 8.00 am this morning with loud music playing.
His neighbour, Paul Ssengonzi told URN that they decided to notify the area LC I chairperson after realising that the deceased hadn't left his room for two days. 

"We decided to call the area chairperson and the police so as to establish whether the residents could break into the house and establish if he is okay," Ssengonzi said.
A team of officers from Abayita Ababiri police station rushed to the hostel and broke into Kateu's room where they found his lifeless body with a stab wound on the neck. Kateu has been a third-year Human Resource student at Nkumba University. 
Joseph Kayabula, the Nkumba Cell publicity secretary has decried the escalating killings in Entebbe and its neighbouring areas. He advises landlords to know their tenants so as to ensure safety.  

"It is dangerous to have tenants you do not know. Now we are trying as much as we can to establish what could have gone wrong but we even have no starting point." Kayabula indicated.  

Police has taken the deceased's body to Mulago hospital for a postmortem. On Saturday last week, another student identified as Sharon Nantumbwe was also killed. Kateu's murder brings to nine the number of people killed in Entebbe and its neighbouring areas in the past two months.

This regime is headed by Dracula who thrives on bloodshed!

The State must be having a hand in the killings which are carried out daily in Buganda.

The police never bothers to investigate because it would be a waste of time since they know that the murderers are untouchable.

But, because Entebbe is becoming notorious for serial killers and/or murder, must every postmortem be referred to or carried out at Mulago Hospital only?

Just asking. Do we have so few pathologist In Uganda?

Where are the "Fundamental Social-economic transformer of Uganda" in the Ministry of heath?

In other words, poverty and vicious crimes like murder are bedfellows. E.g. last week the Observer reported that in Manafwa, a 42-year old father freak out and murdered his 12-year son over a missing piece of pork.
