Police in Kampala Metropolitan South and Katwe Division have arrested a woman over allegations of murder. Apparently, the woman allegedly cut off the genitals of her husband which led to him bleeding to death.
Ms. Biira Joy, from Nabisalu Wasswa Zone, Makindye division had been in a fight with her husband, Mr Baluku Benson. The fight happened upon his return home on March 26, 2023 while drunk.
The police spokesperson, Fred Enanga said that Baluku had always accused his wife of having extramarital affairs. However, this time their usually petty fights turned really violent after he tried to strangle his wife.
“During the domestic fight, the husband grabbed his wife by the neck and started strangling her, which prompted her to draw out a knife and chop off her husband’s genitals,” he said in a statement.
Enanga added saying this incident is another reminder that domestic violence is real and it is life-threatening. The police condemned the rage and anger among the spouses since it can lead to losing respect for each other.
“We would like to remind all spouses living in conflict, to always seek help on how to resolve their family differences,” Enanga said.
