Kampala metropolitan police spokesperson Patrick Onyango had earlier identified the four suspects as Jackeline Danialia, Eria Dakanimya, Jalia Atwine and Barbara Chega. However, according to sources within police, Jalia Atwiine and Barbara Chega who were the deceased’s ex-wife and maid respectively, have so far been released whereas Eria and Jackeline are still detained.

“Eria Baganizi 38years and Jackeline Nabacwa 24years, have confessed to killing Rudel with intention of stealing money from him,” confided a source privy to investigations.”They were earlier named as Eria Dakanimya and Jackeline Danialia but their true names are Baganizi and Nabacwa respectively,” added the source.

The two prime suspects are reported to have hatched a plan of killing Rudel after suspecting him to have huge amounts of money in his house. “But after killing him, they only found Sh200,000, phone and laptop,” intimated the trusted source.


“On a night when Rudel was killed, Nabacwa had taken Baganizi as boda boda cyclist. When Rudel opened the gate for her, Baganizi who had gone as a boda boda cyclist, grabbed and strangled him to death, then they both dragged the dead body inside the house and started searching for the money,” added another source within police. The two suspects are reported to have confessed to the murder of German national and led police to places where they had hidden the deceased’s laptop and mobile phone.
