Just a day after sending off the late Sheikh Nuhu Muzaata, Kawempe Police last night arrested four Kanyamas/bouncers who stormed the deceased’s Kawempe residence while attempting to break into his bedroom.
A small group of mourners were still around giving company to his sisters and a few other relatives. It is alleged that around 8: pm, four heavily-muscled men forced their way into Muzaata’s home before they walked into the direction of his bed room. As they struggled to break in, Muzaata’s sisters made an alarm which attracted other mourners in the tents outside who descended on the Kanyamas beating them badly.
The gate was immediately closed with a padlock as one of the sisters rang Police which responded swiftly and the 4 Kanyamas were immediately apprehended and detained at Kawempe Police Station as investigations deepen.
“It’s not going to be easy because more arrests are going to be made because the Kanyamas [whose names we aren’t comfortable disclosing now lest we jeopardize investigations] have since revealed shocking information implicating many other people including people close to the widow Kulthum Nabunya,” one family source close to the Muzaata sisters who have insisted there is a lot the widow must answer for.
While claiming their brother was killed using slow-killing poison by a family member very close to him, the sisters have insisted the Kawempe Police must do a very good investigative job because this is a very good opportunity for the government (which financially stood with them) to establish the truth regarding who exactly poisoned Muzaata and clear its name after some social media users (incited by Robert Kyagulanyi Sentamu’s conspiracy theories communicated during the Saturday Muzaata sendoff prayers at Kibuli) began claiming the state had a hand in the vocal cleric’s death.
Sources close to the Kawempe Police investigations revealed that the Kanyamas during interrogation, implicated Kampala’s two very prominent Muslim tycoons so far as being the invisible hand behind the motive of their Sunday night raid on Muzaata’s Kawempe home.
The two Muslim tycoons (names withheld so as not to jeopardize police investigations) are understood to be separately closely working with the widow to get hold of some key documents relating to Muzaata’s material possessions (e.g. land ownership) and medical history. One of the tycoons is into commercial farming in the Kyaggwe area and previously was a key investor in transport industry.
The other is into real estate running a city-based company whose adverts dominate airwaves on many radio stations in Kampala. This real estate tycoon has one of his many real estate offices along Bombo Road which Muzaata used to frequently visit to pray for him.
Family sources say the two tycoons are separately close to the widow and must be knowing a lot as to why the Kanyamas were sent to forcefully carry away the key documents from the deceased Muzaata’s bedroom
