Maj.Gen.Kasirye Ggwanga has denied claims that Irine Najjita, a 60 year old who was killed and body dumped in a pit-latrine after disappearing for two weeks is his young sister.
Ggwanga said he had three sisters and the last sister he buried was his twin sister in 1991.
“Irumba,cut the crap. I’m a twin,I buried my twin sister in 1991,that was my last sister. I’m now a loner like a tree,so don’t tell me crap. Everyone wants to use my name to attract attention, what’s wrong with Ugandans,” Ggwanga wondered.
Police in Kassanda District on Thursday recovered Najjita’s body after a two week long search.
Wamala region police spokesperson, Mr Norbert Ochom said the deceased’s body was recovered in a pit- latrine at her home in Kitalegerwa Village, Nalutuntu Sub County.
He said police learnt of Najjita’s disappearance two weeks after her relatives reported a case of missing person at Kakungube police post in Kassanda District and police “immediately” started their investigations.
”The deceased’s body was found in a pit- latrine at her home. The latrine was full of ashes at its edge. It is suspected that someone had been pouring ashes every day to conceal evidence,” Mr Ochom said.
The police spokesperson said Najjita’s neighbours reported to the police after experiencing a foul stench emanating from the pit-latrine.
“We rushed to the scene only to find a decomposing body in a pit-latrine. We managed to retrieve it and handed it to the family for burial,” he said.
A local daily had earlier reported that Ggwanga rushed to the scene and tasked police to hunt for the killers of his ‘sister’.However,Ggwanga said he has never stepped in that place for long. “Your dailies are reporting lies, I have not been there at all, They’re using my name to sale their news,” he told this reporter on phone this morning.
