Man Succumbs to Injuries After Attack by Machete-Wielding Thugs

Peter Nyiiro, a resident of Kagoma Central, in Buwenge sub-county, Jinja district was attacked as he left a bar, in Muguluka trading center on Saturday.
A 44-year-old man, who was attacked by machete-wielding thugs has succumbed to injuries.

Peter Nyiiro, a resident of Kagoma Central, in Buwenge sub-county, Jinja district was attacked as he left a bar, in Muguluka trading center on Saturday. He was rushed to Buwenge Health Centre IV.

The health workers confirmed that Nyiiro had sustained deep head injuries, and lost a lot of blood. He was taken to Jinja Regional Referral Hospital's emergency unit for further management.

However, Nyiiro's condition deteriorated, and was further referred to Mulago National Referral Hospital, where he died on Tuesday.

His father, Dan Mudambada says that Nyiiro was a renowned farmer and boda boda rider in the area.

Kiira Regional Police Spokesperson, James Mubi said that groups of machete-wielding men were wiped out from Jinja City and relocated to rural areas.

Mubi however, said that they have teamed up with local leaders in Jinja district to strengthen neighborhood watch. He says that this will enable residents to be more vigilant against suspicious individuals within the communities.

Mubi also says that local leaders have been encouraged to register all residents and guests, a move he says will ease police efforts in weeding out criminals.
