Authorities in the Kiira region have confirmed the apprehension of three fish traders accused of the murder of their colleague, identified only as Rogers. Irene Akurut, Moses Kataasa, and Wilber Magero are currently held at Jinja Central Police Station facing charges of homicide.

According to reports, the quartet, all residents of Kisiima II island in the southern division of Jinja city, jointly bought 30 pieces of fish from the Kisiima landing site one Friday afternoon. However, Rogers purportedly sold four pieces without informing the others, for 10,000 shillings.

This action incited fury, leading Kataasa and Magero to brutally assault Rogers. Allegedly, upon realizing Rogers’ demise, they staged his death as a suicide by hanging him and tying his body with a rope inside his home.

An anonymous resident, disturbed by the unfolding events, decided to alert the authorities. Kiira Regional Police spokesperson James Mubi revealed that detectives, upon examining the scene, observed discrepancies suggesting foul play. The positioning of the deceased’s body, with feet on the ground, hands stretched, and eyes shut, raised suspicions of homicide disguised as suicide.

Mubi further disclosed that the suspects were apprehended while attempting to flee the island. He mentioned that the deceased’s body was transferred to Jinja Hospital mortuary awaiting postmortem examination. Additionally, efforts are underway to locate the deceased’s relatives, as they are unknown in the area.
