Sekawa was later saved by his neighbours who heard him shout because of the pain after his penis had been detached.
Upon arrest, Rehema told police that she had recently discovered her boyfriend was seeing different girls at a brothel located in Wantoni Mukono District and hatched the revenge plot against Sekawa.
“I discovered that he was secretly going out and flirting with other girls at different bars. This made me very angry. I was full of anger inside and couldn’t relax,” she narrated.
Sekawa was rushed to Namirembe Hospital for treatment while Kabayana was arrested and held in custody over the attack.
Kampala Metropolitan Police Spokesperson Luke Owoyesigyire confirmed that Mukono Police had received an emergency call about a man’s penis being cut off with a knife and responded so fast.
