Residents of Busambaga Village in Katabi town council in Wakiso District woke up in shock today after a body of unidentified woman in her early 20s was found dumped in a compound of a one Ms. Rose Namutebi, a local at Katabi Busambaga.

“The body was discovered by a girl who was sweeping the compound on Monday morning,” Mr. Fred Mugerwa the in charge of security at the area local council said.

He added that body had bruises and was undressed, “She was only left in a top and the rest of her body parts were naked, exposing several scratches.”

According to the area residents, the deceased was last spotted on Sunday at a nearby bar only identified as Captain’s bar.

Residents blamed police for not allowing them to have a look at the deceased because some might have known her. When contacted on the matter, Kampala metropolitan deputy spokesperson Luke Owoyesigire confirmed the death of unidentified lady, which he termed as suspected murder recorded at police file number CRB 042/2019. The body was taken to Mulago hospital for a postmortem as investigations continue.

This lady’s murder comes barely four days after the High Court in Kampala presided by the trial Judge Wilson Kwesiga acquitted Ivan Katongole; a businessman dealing in fish export at Kasenyi landing site in Katabi town council in Wakiso District, Andrew Kizito and Hellen Nabaggala who had been accused of murder following last year’s infamous Entebbe and Nansana women killings. Court aquitted the accussed saying the seven prosecution witnesses presented in court didn’t give substantial evidence linking the suspects to Nakimuli’s murder.

Residents of Buyinja village near Dr. Kizza Besigye’s home in Kasangati are in shock after a woman strangled herself on finding out that she was HIV positive.

Jennifer Tumuhereze (35) was found in her rented apartment in Buyinja village hanging by the rope. Neigbours told this website that Jennifer killed herself after she received terrifying news from the doctor that she was HIV positive.

“When Tumuhereze tested positive with HIV, she ran mad and was rushed to Butabika mental hospital. She later returned stable and started taking her medicine,” one of the locals told the Grapevine.

She was later heard asking neighbours from time to time that, “if someone wants to strangle themselves, what do they do?”

Ronald Namugowa (28), the husband to Jennifer said that, “I woke up in the morning and went for work, I left her in the house healthy and fine. Later in the evening when I came back with a pineapple and ‘kikomando’ (Chapati with beans) to surprise her, I was shocked to find her hanging on the rope next to the entrance of our ‘muzigo’.

Kasangati police was alerted and they removed the body from the rope and took it to Mulago for postmortem before taking it to Kabale for burial.

A mother has been convicted of abusing her 3-year-old daughter in Britain’s first successful prosecution for female genital mutilation.

The 37-year-old Ugandan woman was found guilty Friday at London’s Central Criminal Court. The mother isn’t being named to protect her child’s identity,

She claimed her daughter suffered an accidental injury, but jurors concluded the child had been cut deliberately.

Metropolitan Police Detective Chief Inspector Ian Baker said the girl “was subjected to horrific abuse” but made a good recovery.

However, the woman told court the baby “fell on metal and it ripped her private parts” while trying to get a biscuit in August 2017.

Judge Philippa Whipple said a lengthy prison term is in store at the woman’s March 8 sentencing.

Female genital mutilation – intentionally altering or injuring female genital organs for non-medical reasons – has been a crime in Britain since 1985, but this is the first prosecution to result in a conviction.
