The Inspector General of Police, Kale Kayihura, has said that a businessman was the mastermind of the Entebbe and Nansana women murders that puzzled locals. The Police Chief said that they had arrested suspects who linked the businessman to the murders and said they were done as ritual sacrifices.

"The suspect confessed that he had killed eight women on orders of a businessman here in Nansana. The blood is to feed his rituals to get more wealth," Gen Kayihura said.
He was speaking to residents of Kabumbi Zone, in Nansana Municipality on Tuesday, 22 August.

General Kayihura said the suspect connected to the murders revealed that the businessman hired him to collect women's blood for his ritual satisfaction.

According to the police, at least 17 women have been killed in Nansana Municipality and Katabi Town Council on Entebbe Road between May and August this year.
Out of those confirmed, nine were from Katabi and the other eight in Nansana.

 Nansana's last victim was recorded on July 24 while the latest victim in Katabi was killed last weekend.

He said that mostly, the victims were sex workers who had been raped and strangled in isolated places in "the wee hours of the morning".

"Two were students," he said.

So far, at least six suspects are in police custody in regard to the murders.

He said police was doing well in investigations and promised that the crime will soon be over. He rubbished the claims by media that said the police could not solve the murders. The name of the businessman was not made public.

He added that the police were willing to work with local societies to help the youth in Nansana by giving them motorcycles to help fight unemployment , which was to blame for crime.
