The children have been identified as Musiimenta Eden,12, who completed his Primary Leaving Examinations-PLE this year and Isan Nabaasa,7, who was in P.4.

According to the wife Oliver Ninsiima, her husband who was operating from Kampala came and demanded his children to pay him a visit because he had brought some Christmas gifts. After waiting for long without hearing from her children, she decided to go home and was shocked to find the doors locked. She then decided to report the matter to the LC 1 chairman who advised her to report the matter to police which immediately responded and broke the door, and they were all shocked to find the dead bodies in the bed room.  Police took the three bodies to Ruhoko 1V center for postmortem, and they were later buried.

The Gomborora Internal Security Officer (GISO) for Kagongo Division, Ibanda municipality, Robert Tumusiime who visited the scene said Kyarikunda had developed misunderstandings with his wife due to family problems and was threatening to sell his plots and the family house due to financial debts.
