By Samuel Ssebuliba

The Ministry of Internal Affairs has this afternoon released a formal report on the Wakiso murders linking most of them to ritual purposes.

While presenting the report before parliament, the internal affairs minister Gen Jeje Odong said eight of nine Nansana murders were linked to rituals.

He said that after thorough investigations, it was confirmed that most of these were carried out by a notorious killer known as Ibrahim Kaweesa who confessed to have been hired by a one Philip Tumuhibise to kill for him 12 women for ritual purposes.

The minister says the murder of the ninth Woman Juliet Kyandalli was linked to domestic violence.

Regarding the Katabi murders, police found out that most of them were carried out by a one Ivan Katongole with a motive of getting more money and boosting his wealth.

However Minister Odong has assured the August House that the situation is under control since all the prime suspects are in police custody.
