A 41-year-old man a resident of Kitala Zone, Katabi Town Council was on Thursday found hanging from the ceiling of his house.
Robert Kiyemba reportedly committed suicide following a separation with his wife, Sylvia Namusisi. Residents say the deceased had earlier tried to end his life twice.
The incident comes days after Harriet Nambi, 24, a primary school teacher and a resident of Nakiyanja Village in Kaliro Town Council, allegedly stabbed Musa Batera, 25, for refusing to sleep with her ever since she delivered a baby boy by caesarean section about two months ago.
Until his death, Batera, a husband of three wives, was the chairman of Kaliro District Boda Boda Association since 2011, while Nambi is a primary school teacher in Kaliro Town.
Hasifa Babirye, a neighbour, said the couple developed a misunderstanding three days ago following accusations by Nambi that Batera had repeatedly refused to sleep with her.
“She told me that her husband was denying her sex yet she needed it. I asked her to wait since she had just been operated upon but she was obsessed,” Babirye told police.
She added, “I tried to ask her to give it time but she said she was going to harm him and when the husband returned, she stabbed him.”
According to residents, Nambi lured the deceased to their rented house and as soon as he entered, she started quarrelling which developed into a fight.
