Man Kills Wife after Discovering She was Secretly Using Family Planning
The Territorial Police in Kyegegwa arrested a man who murdered his wife after finding out that she was family planning behind his back.
According to a statement released by Police Spokesperson Fred Enanga, he stuffed her body in their marital bed for four days.
Enanga said that Innocent Kibwetere, 47, who resides in Bujunjura, Ruhangire parish, "allegedly hit his wife with a blunt object, which caused an acute brain injury, that killed her instantly."
The incident happened on November 11.
"The suspect became aggressive after learning that his wife, Ronious Twikirize, aged 25 had started using family planning, following an earlier miscarriage," reads the statement.
"After 4 days with the stuffed body of the deceased, the suspect called his sister-in-law on 15.11.2022, and then told her how he had killed her sister in a domestic or violent domestic setting."
The matter was reported to Kazinga police and cops responded and recovered the body, which was taken to Kyegegwa Hospital for further post-mortem.
"The suspect was also arrested and subjected to a medical examination. He was found to be normal and well-oriented, and is to be charged with murder," reads the statement.
"The incident above shows that there are people in society who have lost the sense of humanity and respect for others. We continue to advise partners in a toxic or violent domestic setting to always seek help from the Child and Family Protection Unit, the nearest Police Station, Probation offices, or NGOs advocating for family rights when it is still early. Remember it is your life and not any others."
