By Uganda Online Media
Lugazi: A loan officer with Pride Microfinance limited in Lugazi municipality who went missing last week has been found dead.
The deceased has been identified as Dounias Nabimanya, 30, who disappeared four days ago when he went to follow up on borrowers in the field.
His employers reported a case of a missing person and a search ensued until Monday when his decomposing body was found in a bush in Luyanzi-Ttoowa in Lugazi Central Division in Buikwe district.
According to Hellen Butoto, the Ssezibwa Regional Police Spokesperson, a Boda Boda rider notified police about the decomposing body in the bush.
Police dispatched homicide detectives who positively identified the deceased as the missing pride Microfinance employee. They also recovered a wallet, a loan book, pen, and mobile handset from the scene.
Butoto said investigations into his death have commenced.
According to Rosette Kyarisiima the deceased’s wife, she last communicated with her husband on Thursday last week but to her shock, he did not return home.
When she contacted his workplace, Kyarisiima was told that the deceased had not reported for work for two days.
Ronald Wasswa, the Pride Micro Finance Bank Lugazi Branch Manager, noted that Nabimanya started working with the branch about a month ago and was not used to the community of Lugazi but his disappearance and death leaves many unanswered questions.
