A 26-year-old man in Jinja district is in trouble cutting the neck of his girlfriend. The suspect is Jackson Otimango, a resident of Walukuba west village in Jinja municipality.    

It is alleged that Otimango attacked Jeralyne Okurut and cut her neck in the wee hours of this morning following a misunderstanding. 

Okurut, who is hospitalized in the Jinja Regional Referral Hospital Emergency unit, says Otimango stormed her residence uninvited around 1:00am Wednesday morning.

 

She explained that Otimango woke her up around 4:00am demanding to discuss the challenges in their relationship. He reportedly turned violent and stabbed her when she declined to discuss with him.
