A fourth year law student at Uganda Christian University was found dead in his girlfriend’s rented house in Jinja.

The acting Jinja District Police Commander, Maurice Niyonzima confirmed that the suspect, Rita Ojuki, 39 was arrested and is currently behind bars.

A Police source claimed that the deceased, David Kibirige committed suicide. However, his father, Mr. Kasule John strongly disagrees and insists his son was murdered.

The late Kibirge’s sister, Joana Waisana agrees with the father. She says Kibirige was a peaceful and friendly person who wouldn’t let thoughts of suicide even cross his mind.

She further said that her brother has been involved in a very abusive relationship with the suspect. The lovers had often dough but later made amends and came back together.

Ms. Waisana told Daily Monitor that drugs and alcohol were found at the suspect’s home, confirming her suspicion that she had been toxic.

Mr. Kasule narrated how he found his son’s body to Daily Monitor publication.

“At about 3am on Sunday, I got a call from an unidentified male saying I should rush to [the girlfriend’s] home with a car. My first instinct was that my son was sick, but had no way of getting a car at such an hour during a curfew.

“I then decided to walk from Bugembe to town, but after 20 minutes, the same person rang, this time rudely asking what was taking me long to arrive. I demanded to speak to [Kibirige’s girlfriend], but he offensively asked: ‘Am I not also a person’?” Mr Kasule said.

Luckily, he said he found a bicycle-taxi which dropped him at the house, and heard people mumbling: ‘They have killed him.’

A neighbour, who preferred anonymity  because the matter is still under investigation, said he last saw the lovers enter their compound on Sunday night.

“The deceased and the suspect normally had a drink at a depot at Rest Corner market,” he said.

KiInvestigations in the matter is still on-going, according local news sites.
