Rukungiri Police retrieves body of a 4 year old that was drowned
Police in Rukungiri has recovered a body of a 4-year old Precious Akanyihayo, one of the two children that were drowned into river Mitano that boarders Rukungiri and Kanungu districts.
The children were drowned into the river last week by their mother, Catherine Tumuranye, a resident of Kifunjo cell, Nyakinengo parish Nyakishenyi Sub County Rukungiri district.
Tumuranye alleges that she was persuaded into this regrettable act after her in-laws evicted her from the land on which they were surviving. Tumuranye told our reporter that her husband Asaph Muhumuza left them two years ago and does not support them.
Akanyihayo’s body was taken to Rwakabengo Mortuary for postmortem as police continues the search for the second body and the suspect is currently held at Rukungiri police station as investigations go on.
