six suspects accused of lynching a man for cautioning them against partying during curfew time. The suspects
ganged up against Elias Kiweewa, a resident of the Central zone in

on Sunday night while partying with loud music.
The more than 20 revellers

say that the group scattered immediately after
realizing that Kiweewa had breathed his last. Police were called to the scene to retrieve the body, which they later hand over to the deceased’s family
Muhammad Nsubuga, the Masaka Region Police Spokesperson, has confirmed the
