The lifeless body of a man in Namisindwa district who disappeared on Sunday has been recovered from Mount Elgon Forest National Park.
The deceased has been identified as Ezra Wesswa, a resident of Bukiminyi village Buwere parish in Bupoto Sub County.
His lifeless body was found dangling on a tree in Mount Elgon Forest National Park yesterday by young boys who had gone to fetch firewood.
Wesswa, who was still unmarried, has been staying with his father because of mental problems.
Residents say the deceased had repeatedly threatened to end his life if his father doesn’t allocate him another piece of land after disposing of the one he was allocated.
John Robert Tukei, the Elgon Region Police Spokesperson, says the deceased’s relatives first picked his body from the crime scene before reporting to police. He said inquiries into the matter are ongoing.
