Kagadi police are stuck with the corpse of an unidentified man lynched on suspicion of stealing a Bajaj Boxer motorcycle registration number UFM 402 K from either Kasese or Kiruhura districts.
Rowdy Boda border riders used sharp objects on Tuesday morning to kill the suspect before torching his body at Kisankwa village Kinyarugonjo sub-county Kagadi district. Moses Muzima Kiconco, the Kagadi District Police Commander, says that police rushed to the scene only to find the lifeless body surrounded by stones and sticks.
He says that they didn't find any identification documents on the deceased's body, which has complicated their investigations. The body is still lying at Kagadi General Hospital mortuary. Police plan to hand over the body to Kagadi town council authorities for burial if no one claims it.
Muzima blames Boda boda riders for taking the law into their hands, which jeopardise police investigations.
//Cue in: "Muzima on mob justice….
Cue in ….. because he is dead,"//
Alinaitwe Mukonyezi, one of the Boda boda riders operating in Mabaale town council, says that he isn't surprised about the suspected mob action since many motorcycles have been stolen from his colleagues in the past years.
