Missing Bweyogerere Man Found Dead Inside Sister’s Car

Stuart Bakkabulindi, who was reported missing three days ago, has been found dead inside his sister’s vehicle. Bakkabulindi was reported missing by his sister Rose Nakitto.

In her statement at Bweyogerere police station, Nakitto said that Bakkabulindi approached her on Saturday at 9 am and asked for her vehicle claiming he was going to see some people but did not return.

“He told me that he was going to return very fast. I waited for him in vain. His telephone lines were going through but he was not picking up. We became suspicious and we decided to report the matter to the police,” Nakitto said.

Patrick Onyango, the Kampala Metropolitan Police Spokesperson, said that police recieved news about Bakkabulindi’s whereabouts from residents of Mbalwa village, who found a car parked some meters away from the main road and a seemingly dead person in the behind seat.

“……information emerged that there was a vehicle parked in Mbalwa and a body inside. Upon examination, it was established that it is the person that we were looking for. It is suspected that he could have been murdered inside the vehicle,” Onyango said.

Kira division and its counterparts at Jinja road retrieved footage from the Closed Circuit Television (CCTV) cameras, which captured the car in which the deceased was found parking. But the footage doesn’t show any person coming out.

Scene of Crime Officers -SOCOs who visited the scene found Bakkabulindi lying dead in the behind seat. He neither had a shirt nor shoes and had a wound on the forehead, which raised suspicion that he was probably murdered.

“When he disappeared, the detectives traced for his phone but signals indicated that he was within Bweyogerere. The phone was ringing and no one was picking up. We are now analyzing all CCTVs to see whether anyone was seen leaving the scene,” Onyango said.

Nakitto and another relative Benon Kabuye suspect that Bakkabulindi was killed and driven to the spot where his body was found. Bakkabulindi’s death is similar to that of Musiitwa who was found dead inside his wife’s car in Kasengejje in Wakiso district in April last year.

Musiitwa’s death resulted from the mistaken shooting and killing of his young brother Robert Kagolo, a former journalist at Star FM, one of the stations under the Uganda Broadcasting Corporation-UBC.
