Police in Mukono is holding captive several sex workers for allegedly beating to death a client at their residence.

It’s alleged that the Sex workers from Wantoni town, Mukono municipality who have so far spent nine days in police custody, together with the manager of Recess Bar and lodges, Abdu Kiggundu allegedly on the night of September 19 beat to death a man whose identity is not yet determined by police over lacking any identity documents.

According to Ggulu ward LC1 chairperson Muhammad Wasswa Takwana, the deceased had gone to seek sexual services but failed to agree on payments.

According to Takwana, a sex worker agreed to offer services to the deceased at Shs.5,000 at Recess lodges. However, after the act, the man paid a five thousand shillings note and demanded Shs.1,000 change which the sex worker declined to return.

“After minutes of bickering, the man confiscated the mobile telephone from the woman and demanded the change money as he walked away with the telephone. The woman made an alarm which attracted her colleagues and they started beating him on accusations of stealing the phone,” he said.

Meanwhile, Kampala Metropolitan Police Spokesperson Patrick Onyango said police has so far conducted the screening exercise of the arrested suspects with six still in custody.

He, however, declined to reveal the names of suspects who are still behind the bars on grounds of not interfering with the investigations. 

“We have recorded statements from relevant witnesses and screened the twelve suspects that we had initially arrested and remained with only six in custody. We have enough evidence pinning them on this murder case,” Onyango said.
