A man surrendered to Police in Kabarole District on Saturday in connection to rape and killing of a 10-year-old girl.
Lydia Tumushabe, the Rwenzori West Region Police Spokesperson says David Agondeze, a resident of Ngombe village in Busoro Sub County reported himself to police claiming he was behind the gruesome acts. According to Tumushabe, the 26-year-old came out of his hideout after his village mates threatened to lynch him on suspicion that he was behind the minor’s death.
The victim is said to have left home at around 3pm on Wednesday to fetch water from a nearby stream but didn’t return. This prompted her grandfather to seek help from residents to search for her granddaughter. The search went on throughout the night until the minor’s body was recovered from a swamp on Thursday morning.The swamp is about 300 meters from the stream where the girl had gone to fetch water.
