Rukiga District: Woman Arrested For Conspiring With Her Lover To Murder Her Husband

Two people have been arrested by the Rukiga police in connection to the attempted murder of 32-year-old man Abel Habasa. The victim is a resident of Rwenzaza Village in Kashekye Parish, Kamwezi Sub County, Rukiga district.

Elly Maate, the Kigezi Regional Police Spokesman confirmed that they arrested  Slyvia Tugumisirize, the wife of the victim and her lover Bright Niwahereza. Apparently, on October 18th, it is alleged that Tugumisirize conspired with his lover Niwahereza to kill Habasa. It is also alleged that Tugumisirize had promised a Ugx 1million prize to her lover if he went through with it.

Reports show that on the planned day, Niwahereza timed the victim as he went to the toilet on Monday night. He followed Habasa and hit him with a hoe on the head. However, Habasa managed to escape and ran towards the house where he fell unconscious. Habasa’s neighbor and relatives ran to his rescue and rushed him to Kamwezi Health Center IV where he is currently receiving treatment.

Maate said one of the residents, Musinguzi Henry, reported the case. This prompted the police to immediately rush to the crime scene. While there, they arrested the suspects right away and recovered the hoe used in the attempted murder as an exhibit.

Police registered the case of attempted murder at Kamwezi Police Station under reference number SD 11/16/10/2022 to help in investigations.
