Residents of Rwesanziro village in Kyanamira Sub County in Kabale district on Monday passed a vote of no confidence in their village chairperson David Niwamanya accusing him of participating in the murder of an area resident.
This was resolved in a meeting with the Kyanamira sub county authorities led by LC3 chairman Deus Kamugisha, the officer in charge of Kyanamira sub county police post, Francis Tumwine and the sub county chief, Zerida Rindabo.
The locals accused Niwamanya of giving false information to police in connection to the murder of one Methodius Byabagambi Sedume who was killed by unidentified assailants on 31st September 2020.
They claim that Niwamanya told police that the deceased was a thief, a witch, a womanizer and a night dancer which they disagree.
They also accused Niwamanya for writing letters to the district authorities without the knowledge of other village executive committee members.
Kamugisha and Rindabo called for calm among the locals saying that police are doing the needful to ensure that all the suspects behind the murder are arrested and charged accordingly.
They also withdrew a village stamp from the chairman and handed it over to the village vice chairperson, Mary Tubarekye.
However, Niwamanya denied all the accusations against him saying that he only recorded a statement at Kabale Central police station about the death of Niwanya. He also denied giving false information to police about the deceased.
