Police in Kabale district have arrested a 45 year old woman who allegedly killed her husband with the help of her two sons.
It is alleged that Evas Nkwasa together with her two sons Isaac Kiiza and Barnet Niwamanya killed Bosco Niwagaba 35 over yet to be established reasons.
Our reporter was able to understand that Nkwasa a resident of Kigarama B, Hamuhambo Ward, Ryakarimira Town Council in Kabale District was already a mother to the two boys before she got married to Bosco.
The Ryakarimira town council Mayor Canon Enock Kazooba told www.mknewslink.com reporter that Bosco was hit on the head with either an axe or a hand hoe.
According to him, this was after the couple developed a fight over money they had collected from a bar they jointly owned near their home in Kigarama Trading Centre.
He added that the fight turned bloody prompting the children to intervene to rescue their mother who was being overpowered by the husband. Kiiza who is the eldest son reportedly picked a hoe and hit his step father on the head and the victim collapsed to the ground.
According to Canon Kazooba, a neighbor identified as Ms Black made an alarm that attracted residents to save Bosco’s life as he was already lying motionless and unconscious. They rushed him to Kabale Regional Referral Hospital where he was pronounced dead on arrival.
Kazooba added that after notifying Police, he commanded a team of locals in an operation to arrest the suspects, but by the time they arrived at the scene, Kiiza and Barnet had already taken off into hiding. Their mother was apprehended, detained at Ryakarimira Town Council Police Post, before she was transferred to Kabale Police Station.
Spencer January who is an uncle to the deceased told our reporter that Nkwasa had on several occasions had unsuccessful attempts to kill her husband over unknown reasons.
January said the deceased is survived by four young children. He wants a jail sentence of at least 50 years handed to the suspected murderers as a lesson to others.
The Kigezi Region Police Spokesperson Elly Maate confirmed the incident adding that the Scene of Crime Officers arrived at the scene and picked the exhibits for further Investigations
