According to information obtained by our reporter, the couple has had a long domestic dispute that various priests at St. Mark Cathedral in Luwero town have tried to settle in vain. The couple had separated rooms because of the feud. Nakalema’s body was found lying in the pantry where she had moved too because of the feud. 

By the time of filing story, detectives from Luwero Central Police Station were still gathering evidence from the crime scene. Isah Semwogerere, the Savannah Region Police Spokesperson has confirmed the arrest of Reverend Sekibaala to explain the circumstances surrounding his wife’s death.

Semwogerere says Luwero Hospital will conduct a postmortem to establish the exact cause of death but preliminary investigations point to strangulation. The deceased’s relatives have asked Police to release the body for burial but asked her three children to stay away, saying they have sided with their father in the conflict.   

The children, who are said to have in the house at the time of the incident, have remained tightlipped on the matter.  The relatives have also rejected plans to bury the deceased’s remains at her husband’s home, saying the body should be transported to her ancestral home in Mukono.   

In June this year, Robert Masinde, a resident of Kamira trading center hacked his wife, Jennipher Ajambo leaving her hospitalised with a broken arm.  At least 50 cases of dometic violence were registered by Luwero district probation office between March and June this year.
