A CCTV camera is perched near the scene of the crime and the Police hopes to identify the assailants and also determine where they went after committing the heinous crime.
The Murder of Kamikazi and Ruhegyera happens hours after the Minister of internal Affairs, Gen.Jeje Odongo admitted that government has not done much for the on-going cases of murder in the country.
The Minister, speaking to parliament yesterday briefed the MPs on the Steps security agencies are taking to address the growing crime rate even though he accused the opposition leaders in Uganda of what he called exacerbating the security situation in the country.
The latest murder of the two people comes only a few days when unidentified assailants kidnapped 28-year-old Maria Nagirinya, and Ronald Kitayimbwa,35, a boda boda rider and killed them.
