Man On The Run For Strangling Wife to Death

Namukuve's lifeless body was found lying in her bedroom around 12:00 pm on Monday afternoon. Rwampara is suspected to have killed the deceased on Sunday night.
Kiira Region Police has launched a manhunt for a man suspected of strangling his wife to death.

The suspect is Godfrey Rwampara, a resident of Buwekula cell in the Northern division in Jinja city.

He is suspected of strangling to death his wife, Betty Namukuve before fleeing into hiding.
 

Namukuve's lifeless body was found lying in her bedroom around 12:00 pm on Monday afternoon. Rwampara is suspected to have killed the deceased on Sunday night.

The couple's six-year-old boy says that his father left home in the night without explaining where he was headed to.   

"My parents fight on a daily basis but last night, I saw my father living the house," he said. Proscovia Nairuba, a resident within the area, says that the couple has been entangled in disputes over land.

"These two are my neighbours but Rwampara wanted to sell off their land without Namukuve's consent, which led to countless fights," she said.

Kiira Region Police spokesperson, Abbey Ngako, says Namukuve's body is lying at Jinja Regional Referral Hospital mortuary awaiting postmortem.

Ngako says that they have since notified security operatives in the neighbouring districts to ensure that the suspect is tracked down and apprehended.
