KANUNGU – Police in Kanungu District are currently conducting an investigation into the circumstances surrounding the death of Jenesita Bandaganire, a 58-year-old resident of Katebere village in Kayungwe parish, Kayungwe Sub County.
According to reports, on the night of August 21, 2023, at around 8:00 PM, the last sighting of the deceased was at Mukanoni Trading Centre. It is said that she was there to purchase bushera before leaving for her residence.
Tragedy struck on the morning of August 22, 2023, approximately at 7:00 AM, when the lifeless body of Jenesita Bandaganire was discovered. She was found lying in a sweet potato plantation about 30 meters away from Katebere road. Her body was surrounded by a pool of blood that emanated from her nose and ears. The presence of head injuries was also evident.
Preliminary investigations suggest a possible motive behind her untimely demise. Apparently, she had been engaged in leveling the ground at her residence to facilitate the construction of a new house. This activity might have attracted undue attention from ill-intentioned individuals who may have believed that she possessed a significant amount of money.

Law enforcement officers subsequently visited the scene to conduct a thorough examination.
