Police in Luwero are investigating the murder of Nduwayesu Marie Rose, a 48-year-old Rwandan national. Her body was discovered at Klne Guest House in Kizito, Luwero Town Council, with a Rwandan National Identity Card. Preliminary findings indicate that the murder occurred on Saturday, May 18, 2024.

The primary suspect, identified as Gerald Byamugisha, is currently on the run. According to Savannah Regional Police spokesperson Sam Twiineamazima, Byamugisha, who did not provide any other personal information or a contact number, booked a room at the guest house with the deceased at 2 pm on Saturday. They stayed in the room until 5 pm, when Byamugisha left alone, arousing no initial suspicions.

The relationship between the suspect and the victim is yet to be established. On Sunday morning, May 19, 2024, a room attendant discovered Rose's body. It was found facing upward with her head shoved under the toilet seat, and a yellow piece of cloth, apparently used to strangle her, was tightly tied around her neck.

The cleaner informed the guest house proprietor, Kigozi Lameka, who then notified Luwero Central Police Station (CPS). The police swiftly responded to the information and registered a murder case. CCTV footage was recovered to aid ongoing investigations. Several suspects have been apprehended, though their identities have yet to be revealed.

The deceased's body has been taken to the Luwero Hospital morgue for an autopsy. The investigation includes a manhunt for the key suspect, Byamugisha.
