Inspector General of Police Gen Kale Kayihura is expected soon to release a “comprehensive statement” on the ceaseless gruesome murders of women in the Entebbe area.
The police is under growing pressure, in the midst of continuous killings of women in Entebbe, the latest being 25 year old Aisha Nakasinde, whose body was Thursday found decomposing in a thicket in Kivundira village, Katabi town council.
Nakisinde brought to seven the number of women murdered in the area in the last 8 weeks.
All victims, police has found, are raped first and most have been found with sticks shoved in their private parts, an indication that the murders are not spontaneous.
Amidst grown public unease, Police spokesperson Asan Kasingye on Saturday issued a statement, dismissing public and media sentiments that the police force has failed on its part.
“Quite to the contrary,” he said, “the (Police) has registered significant strides that include arrests and some of the have confessed.”
Kasingye pointed out in the statement that the suspects arrested in the murder of Narah Wanyana, a student at Airforce S.S in Entebbe confessed to taking part in the crime.
He says the force has intensified the manhunt for other suspects yet to be arrested and that they have “very strong leads.”
Kasingye says they are relying largely on community policing to find the criminals and urged the locals to work with the Community Liaison Officer and to be much more vigilant.
People with useful information in the murders were urged to call 0772415982 or 0712667705.
