“Juliet Nabasumba who was in her house at about midnight was attacked and stabbed by assailants,” said Deputy Police spokesperson, Polly Namaye.

She further pointed out that a five litter jerrycan containing suspicious substances was recovered from the scene of crime.

“The police are investigating circumstances under which this disturbing incident occurred with the view of arresting the assailants,” she added.


Namaye urged the public with clues on the crime to contact police on telephone numbers 0714667821 and 0714667822.

Despite the killing, Namaye says the grand World Cup finals that were viewed across Uganda by a big number of fans were largely peaceful.

“The viewers, who included those that went to Namboole in thousands, had a great time and were all secure to the end. From those seated at home to those viewing at public venues, there was no report of a criminal nature,” said Namaye.

At least 79 people were killed by Al Shabaab terrorists as they watched the 2010 World Cup finals on television.

During the weekend, Police deployed heavily at all social places to beef up security for soccer fans.

“The police would like to congratulate all Ugandans for having taken their security as paramount and for having co-operated with the police to the end. Vigilance, alertness and caution are key in fighting terrorism, as was evident during the World Cup viewing on Sunday night,” said Namaye.

“Needless to say, in 2010, Uganda was targeted by terrorists who killed and injured many Ugandans and visitors to Uganda. The police continue to encourage the public to be vigilant. Security cannot be taken for granted whether in places of worship, homes or businesses such as hotels and lodges,” she added.

“The World Cup jubilation will soon be behind us. More security needs such as reduction in traffic accidents, more vigilance to counter terrorism, child trafficking, drug trafficking, domestic violence and theft of animals will require greater co-operation between the police and the public. Community policing provides the stepping stone to this liaison and the police is banking on the public for support to make Uganda a crime free society that will attract more investments on the way to enhanced development.”
