In Lyantonde, Chimp Corp, Farouk Twesigye says drama unfolded when Kirungi raided the area police station seeking answers from the District Police Commander, Timothy Eyaku on how cows were parked on a lorry and taken to an unknown destination.

Eyaku was not in office at the time.

Detective Ruth Katusiime said a case of theft under file number CRB 32/2014 has been opened to facilitate inquiries into the incident.

A dispute over property left behind by Kategaya has since triggered bad blood between the two widows.

The matter is before court.

Kirungi said she was surprised to find that authorities who were mandated to protect the farm looked on idly as the animals were loaded onto a Fuso brand car and stolen.

Lyantonde RDC Suleiman Tuguragara Matojo told journalists: “The controversy surrounding ownership of Kategaya’s farm is yet to be resolved. It is only the IGP, RPC and DPC who are supposed to handle this case not me and if the cattle were stolen the three bosses are the ones to explain.”

He, however, pointed out that due to lack of proper care, the cows were destroying people’s gardens.
