KAMPALA –The American Federal Bureau of Investigations have arrived in Uganda to help investigate the recent back-to-back killings of women in, Entebbe and its surroundings.
Uganda’s spokesperson Asan Kasingye said Monday that the FBI agents are already in the country to first identify the bodies of the 23 women killed since May this year.
“Three FBI forensics experts are trying to establish whether the deceased were Ugandan nationals or not,” Mr Kasingye said.
The victims are killed in similar manner by the suspects who first rape them and shove sticks into their private parts.
Police have been stuck with bodies of the three unidentified women, two of whom were killed in Katabi town council in Entebbe and the other in Nansana municipality between May and September of this year.
“We always collaborate with international agencies but that does not mean we have delegated our constitutional mandate. FBI is helping us in forensic investigation purposely to identify the three women bodies,” Mr Kasingye said when asked whether FBI had taken other investigations.
Police says about 30 suspects have been arrested. They are being held in separate cells in Nansana and Kigo near Entebbe.
These deaths have created fear among the people staying near Entebbe airport after police started limiting movements of people at night.
