Incident reported

He said the incident was reported at Lumakanda police station.

“Officers have arrested two boys and they will appear in court to face murder charges once we complete investigations,” said Mr Muli.

He appealed to area residents to report relationship differences to the police for immediate action rather than resort to fights.

“The incident could have been prevented if the matter was reported early. Parents should monitor their children's behavior and guide them on how to handle teenage issues,” he said.
