Betrayal! how best friend masterminded robbery, killing of city lawyer and NRM registrar

A joint team of the Chieftaincy of Military Intelligence(CMI) and Police’s Crime Intelligence Division have arrested one Bwambale Sunday Swaibu, for plotting the killing and robbing of a city lawyer, Robert Kifunga Aguma who was also the NRM registrar for Bundibugyo district

Aguma, 43 a Managing Partner at Aguma Kifunga and Company Advocates found in Makindye was last month murdered in cold blood body dumped in Bundibugyo at a footpath near Bimala river.

However, following the incident, security embarked on the hunt for the killers and consequently, retrieved footage from CCTV cameras from Centenary Bank in Fort Portal branch where the deceased had withdrawn shs 42 million prior to his death.

Footage from other CCTV cameras also indicated that Bwambale had been seen in the same vehicle UBL 885 F with the deceased.

According to police spokesperson, Fred Enanga, on March 25, 2022, Bwambale in his own vehicle escorted the deceased lawyer to Fort Portal town where he withdrew sh42 million from Centenary Bank and drove towards Bundibugyo.

“The information our teams got is that Bwambale then alerted his accomplices in Bundibugyo who lured the lawyer into a gold transaction. When the two arrived (in Bundibugyo) at around 8 pm, they met with the said gold dealers but these lured him(lawyer) into a trap,” Enanga said.

According to the police spokesperson, after being led into the trap, the lawyer was strangled to death and the shs42 million that he had withdrawn from the bank in Fort Portal was taken.

It was later shared between the deceased lawyer’s best friend, Bwambale, and a group of other people.

The body was later transported and dumped three kilometers away from the crime scene.

 According to Enanga, Bwambale was arrested last week from his home in Kasese and later admitted to orchestrating the murder and later robbery after CCTV footage from Centenary Bank in Fort Portal and along the way depicted him together with the deceased.

”Bwambale told the operatives that after the murder and robbery, he made sure he attended the funeral and burial of the deceased lawyer so as not to raise any suspicion from the family members” Enanga revealed.

“Initially he denied involvement claiming the deceased was his best friend and that he had participated in the burial where he even contributed money to cater for some expenses. Those who saw him at the burial say he was so emotional and gave a moving tribute. When we showed him private CCTV footage from the bank and two other places, he broke down and confessed to having conspired to kill and rob the lawyer. He told us he attended the funeral so that the deceased’s relatives don’t suspect him,” Enanga added.

The police spokesperson said the hunt for Bwambale’s accomplices is still on to ensure they answer to charges of aggravated robbery, murder, and related conspiracies
