Man On the Run For Killing Wife's Lover

Nabeta, who sells produce allegedly left him home for a business trip in the neighboring Bugiri district on Christmas night but on returning home on Boxing day, he opened his marital home using his personal key only to find Balidawa lying in the same bed with his wife.
Busoga East police have launched a manhunt Muzafalu Nabeta and his wife, Mirabu Mutesi, both residents of Buwongo village in Makutu sub-county in Bugweri district for their alleged involvement in the death of Charles Balidawa.

It is alleged that Nabeta killed Balidawa after finding him in a compromising situation with Mutesi in the wee hours of Monday morning. Nabeta, who sells produce allegedly left him home for a business trip in the neighboring Bugiri district on Christmas night but on returning home on Boxing day, he opened his marital home using his personal key only to find Balidawa lying in the same bed with his wife.

He reportedly used a hoe to hit Balidawa, who was dead asleep in the head. Mutesi shouted for help, which attracted the attention of their neighbors who rushed Balidawa to Iganga general hospital, where he passed on in the evening. The couple allegedly fled from the scene of the crime for fear of mob action.

The Village Defense Secretary, Zubair Wandera, says that Nabeta and Mutesi have been a peaceful couple without any record of infidelity, saying that they were shocked to receive news about this fatal incident. Diana Nandawula, the Busoga East region police spokesperson says that the deceased has been taken to Iganga general hospital mortuary, awaiting postmortem. 

Nandawula notes that the search for Nabeta and Mutesi is underway, saying that the couple will face two counts of murder and connivance to commit murder. She challenged couples to seek counseling services from their in-laws, local leaders, and religious leaders to amicably resolve their marital differences rather than resort to violent means, which cost life and property.
