Nicholas Mukelesi a boda boda rider, also a resident of Lunnyo East narrated how Nalema’s parents mounted a search when it clocked 8pm before their daughter could return home. “Mugema and Nakalema’s parents were renting on the same block hence it was easy for him to lure the girl into his room,” narrated Mulekesi. The deceased’s father one Ibrahim Sserwadda 34years, allegedly returned home at around 7pm and found two of his elder sons searching for Nakalema who had disappeared at around 5pm.

After the neighbours joined the search, Nakalema was found dead and body dumped about 10metres away from the family rental room. A source within police intimated that blood was found oozing out of the deceased’s genitals and her knickers stained with the same. After the gruesome act, Mugema first ran away which caused suspicion among neighbours. “Upon his arrest and crime scene revisitation, the suspect’s clothes and bedsheets were found stained with blood which is yet to be taken to the government analytical laboratory for DNA analysis,” intimated a source privy to investigations.

Patrick Onyngo the Kampala metropolitan police spokesperson confirmed the arrest of Vincent Mugema who is being charged with aggravated defilemement and murder vide EBB CRB 685/2020. He’s expected to appear in court early next week.
