The Territorial Police in KMP South and Katwe Division have in custody, a woman identified as Biira Joy, who hails from Nabisalu Wasswa Zone, Makindye division, for alleged murder by cutting off the genitals of her husband, identified as Baluku Benson.
According to Police Spokesperson Fred Enanga, the facts gathered indicate that the husband returned home on March 26 while drunk and started fighting his wife. The wife has always accused him of having extramarital affairs, according to Enanga.
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.
"The incident is another reminder that Domestic Violence is real and life-threatening," Enanga said.
"It further shows how rage and anger, exist among spouses, causing them to lose 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."
