Police officers have recovered the bodies of Ronald Aharuhundira and his lover Paulina Nalubega in Mugoye Sub County, Kalangala district. The lovers were residents of Bungo village.
Police is yet to release a statement about the deaths that residents say happened on Friday.
However, Gerald Bwegaba, the area chairperson, suspects 28-year- old Aharuhundira strangled Nalubega because there were bruises on her neck and lips and also blood on her nose. Bwegaba thinks that Aharuhundira thereafter hanged himself probably due to guilt because he was wearing one of Nalule’s t-shirts and a wristband with the words “I can’t live without you”.
He is however not sure whether or not the lovers had a misunderstanding because they were peaceful residents.
