Police in Soroti has arrested the area DISO for shooting to death an engineer following a road rage

Police has arrested the Soroti District Internal Security Officer (DISO) Stephen Nuwangira for allegedly shooting to death an engineer working with Access Solar in Opuyo, Soroti. The suspect has since been produced to the Soroti grade one magistrate court presided over by Edmund Okiror Okwi who remanded him until January 6 .

He is accused of shooting Cedric Kayiwa on December 21, 2022, along Soroti-Mbale highway. Okiror didn’t allow Nuwangira to plead to the charges since the Magistrate’s court lacks jurisdiction to hear the murder cases. Murder cases are only tried by the High court.

According to police the accused Nuwangira and the deceased had a quarrel along the Soroti highway leading the fatal shooting.
