Two brothers have stunned residents in Maneno village, Lumakanda location, Lugari Sub County after they stole a neighbor’s cow and took it to their house where they slaughtered and made a delicacy out of it.
Confirming the incident, Mwamba sub location assistant chief Edwin Nashirobe said residents were invited into the two brother’s compound by unusual smell and when they entered the house occupied by Peter Agesa and Kennedy Isalio on Saturday afternoon they were shocked to find the slaughtered animal, which was half way consumed.
The incident attracted hundreds of residents who were left in bewilderment following the bizarre incident.
Sensing danger, Agesa fled leaving his brother who was attacked by the angry mob that descended upon him with all manner of crude weapons threatening to lynch him before offices from Lumakanda police station were called in and managed to rescue him.
According to Nashirobe, the cow was reported missing from Mr. Obadiah Musunya’s compound on 23/12/2020 and he had booked the incident at the Majengo police post.
Isalio was taken to Lumakanda police station together with the carcasses waiting to be arraigned in court.
