Nagirinya Murder: CMI Reconstructs Crime Scenes

A joint team of security operatives led by the Chieftancy of Military Intelligence (CMI) on Friday visited various places around Kampala metropolitan as part of the ongoing investigations into the murder of NGO worker Maria Nagirinya and her driver Ronald Kitayimbwa.

The process was a reconstruction of crime scenes in the murder case under investigation.

Operatives were led by the suspects who were arrested early this week.

Among the suspects is a one Hussein Kasolo, the man who is said to have been captured on CCTV cameras while driving the late Nagirinya’s car after the kidnap.

The others were Johnson Lubega, and Hassan Kiseka who were arrested from Natete in Kampala on Sunday.

Operatives were led in all the routes that the suspects passed starting from Natete where they hired a boda boda to Busega Nabisasilo Zone where the victims were kidnapped.

From Busega, they passed through Lungujja, Masanufu to Northern bypass and headed to Mukono Nabitutuli along Kayunga road where they dumped the bodies of the victims.

At Nabitutuli, the suspects showed and demonstrated to investigators how they executed the heinous act.


At all the scenes, roads were temporarily closed which attracted crowds who also witnessed the process.

In Mukono, locals urged security agencies to strengthen security especially Nabitutuli swamp which they say has become a black spot where killers execute their missions.

From Mukono, the suspects led security to Namanve industrial park where they dropped off blood stained clothes of the deceased before proceeding to Nalukolongo and Lungujja where they withdrew money from their phones.

Kampala Metropolitan Police Deputy Spokesperson Luke Owoyesigire revealed that the three confessed to have committed the murder.

He said that after investigations have been complete, their file will be forwarded to the directorate of public prosecutions for perusal and advice.
