KABERAMAIDO – Police in Kaberamaido District are investigating circumstances under which unknown people broke into the house of the area Grade One magistrate and left bows and arrows on her bed.
The District Police Commander, Mr Godfrey Abigaba, said they have opened up a general inquiry file, SD Ref.20/04/01/2019, after Ms Everest Faith Pwalodi reported the matter to Kaberamaido Central Police Station.
“We rushed to the scene of crime, we found the front and behind doors had been broken into, and a few things picked, but shockingly, arrows were left on the bed of the magistrate,” he explained.
Mr Abigaba said no one has been arrested in connection to this incident.
“This is a serious crime on the person of the magistrate, which besides the burglary, involves threats to her life,” he said.
He added that they have deployed a police officer to guard the house where the magistrate sleeps.
Ms Pwalodi, when contacted said by the time the incident happened, she was a way for a weekend but on returning early today for work, she found her house broken into.
“I think the intention was to harm me, because the knife, bows and arrows left on my bed speak volumes,” the magistrate added.
Ms Pwalodi said she suspects the persons behind this to be the ones with land cases at the magistrate’s courts.
“I am not broken, I have to carry on with my duties,” she added.
Ms Pwalodi said that she has dismissed 15 cases of land that had overstayed since 2003
