A three-day search for a Uganda born UK student ended yesterday after his body was discovered in the bushes of Bwebajja on Entebbe Road in Wakiso District.
Huzaifah Ntambala, 24, who had come to Uganda for a short holiday, was reported missing on Monday.
The deceased was reportedly last seen taking a boda boda in Kamwokya to Bunga area in the suburbs of Kampala where his relatives lived.
Kampala Metropolitan deputy police spokesperson Luke Owoyesigyire said Ntambala could have boarded a boda boda which could have diverted to another destination.
Police said the hunt for the boda boda rider has been launched.
Ntambala only spoke English, this is the reason police suspect he was targeted thinking he had huge amounts of money on him.
By press time, police authorities indicated that the body was lying at Mulago hospital mortuary for postmortem.
Meanwhile, on Wednesday night, there was a shooting on Ben Kiwanuka Street where a bank guard killed a woman and injured another.
It is alleged that the culprit was angry after being paid less than what he often charges for using the bank space.
They claim vendors would pay him between Shs500 and Shs1,000 to sell their merchandise.
Mr Owoyesigyire said the guard in his statement claimed that he was being attacked by a group of men.
“Our preliminary investigations have indicated the people he shot were not near him but were on a motorcycle. This leaves many unanswered questions but our investigators will probe the incident in detail,” Mr Owoyesigyire said.
However, the three eyewitnesses who have reportedly recorded statements with police, have dismissed the security guard’s narrative insisting he was angry over a bribe.
Police have established the guard is attached to Swat Security Company. The victims are Brendah Bukoye and Anita Nanyonjo.
