Shockingly, they further confessed to demanding a ransom of 20 million from Kazungu’s daughter before ultimately disposing of his body in a pit latrine in order to conceal the evidence.

Nandawula asked workers to promptly report any mistreatment experienced in employment to the nearest police station or local council. This measure aims to discourage such incidents from escalating into tragic acts of violence, which harm both workers and employers.

She further asked individuals without formal appointment letters to provide any evidence substantiating their work history with the individual or organization in question. The two suspects are detained at Bugiri district police station as the file is wrapped up.
