Godfrey Kavulu the publicity secretary of Magoma village says that Nalwanja’s body was discovered by residents at around 9:00 am who were passing near a bricklaying site where she was killed last night.
A man in Nakaseke District has killed his wife and later committed
suicide following disagreements over money.
The deceased have been identified as Sharif Mbaziira and Juliet Nalwanja all
residents of Magoma trading center in Kikamulo Sub County in Nakaseke district.
Godfrey Kavulu the publicity secretary of Magoma village says that Nalwanja’s
body was discovered by residents at around 9:00 am who were passing near a
bricklaying site where she was killed last night.
Kavulu explains that the dead body of Nalwanja was found stripped naked and
with a thread in the neck which implied that he was strangled to death.
Kavulu adds in search in nearby bushes, residents also landed on Mbaziira’s body
hanging on a tree an indication he committed suicide after killing the wife.
Peter Sebayigga a resident says that the two developed a quarrel
two days ago and the woman later separated with him something they suspect that
have to lead the man to kill her.
Bosco Busulwa the LCI Chairperson of Magoma village says that on Saturday
evening, Nalwanja reported the husband accusing Mbaziira of stealing 190,000 Shillings
and a blender.
Busulwa added that he tried to reconcile the two in vain and the woman declared
that she had separated with him.
He adds that he was shocked to receive information on Sunday morning that the
husband killed the wife and also committed suicide.
Policemen from Kiwoko Police Station later arrived at the scene on
Sunday morning and transferred the dead body to Nakaseke hospital for post-mortem.
Isah Ssemwogerere the Savannah Regional Police Spokesperson says
that investigations into the incident have begun and a file CRB 96/2021 opened
up at Kiwoko Police Station.
Ssemwogerere said preliminary investigations indicate that the woman could have
been raped before she was strangled to death by the alleged husband.
Ssemwogerere however asked married couples to seek redress from Child and Family
Protection unit while in disagreements rather than resorting to actions that
can lead to death.
