Police has discovered another body of a woman who was killed in Nyanama Mutundwe parish along Entebbe road in Katwe Division Kampala district.
According to Police Spokesperson, Asan Kasingye, the unidentified woman, 20, was strangled on Monday morning.
“Preliminary findings show that she was strangled. Police have commenced with investigations into the murder,” Kasingye said.
The body of the deceased has been taken to Mulago Hospital Mortuary for a post-mortem.
This becomes the 20th woman killed in Wakiso and Kampala districts in a matter of weeks.
Police has so far arrested 30 people in connection with the murders of women in Nansana and Entebbe municipalities.
Kasingye said 12 of the victims have been classified as cases of sexual assault, four cases of domestic violence, one was killed by two brothers in what the police have classified as a revenge killing, and the rest seemed to be ritual murders.
The Inspector General of Police Gen Kale Kayihura entered a partnership with boda boda riders and prostitutes to help gather intelligence on those killing the women.
The Speaker of Parliament, Rebecca Kadaga, has since tasked the security agencies and responsible ministers to present a report on the matter.
