Ugandan boda-boda rider killed in Yei town

A Ugandan national working as a ‘boda-boda’ motorcyclist was killed in Yei town on Friday night after quarreling over a phone with a friend, a local official said.

The late Kaguta Seme, a boda-boda rider and local musician was stabbed to death at Dar-Salam-Lizira Street in Yei.

Close friends to the late said Kaguta had a quarrel with a friend over the ownership of a smart phone the evening before his death.

Speaking to Radio Tamazuj at the scene, Yei River County Commissioner Dennis Lasuba said investigations will be launched to ascertain the circumstances of the incident.

“The victim happened to be a Ugandan national; we have police at the scene carrying out investigations. A case will be opened, and the investigations will be carried out. It is very unfortunate and I personally condemn it,” said Lasuba.

“We cannot resolve dispute by taking out someone’s life and that is uncalled for. Therefore, I call on the community to refrain from these bad activities” he added.

Last week, Pastor Simon Kwaje was also found dead along the Yei-Mukaya road.
