“My wife was preparing ‘mboga’ at the time. So, when she asked for the money, and I told her that I couldn’t raise it, given the hard economic times I am going through, she poured the ‘mboga’ out of the ‘sufuria’ and raised tantrum,” said Sikuku.

The suspect confessed that he thereafter reached for a kitchen knife and stabbed his wife in the shoulder.

“I lost my cool and mind,” said Sikuku.

His wife’s screams for help caught the attention of neighbours, who rushed to Sikuku’s home and rescued the victim. Mr. Sikuku was clobbered by the angry neighbours before being handed over to the police.

Sikuku’s wife was treated and discharged. She however refused to lodge formal complaint with the police but instead opted to leave her matrimonial home.

The woman is said to have returned to her parents’ home in Busia-Uganda border.


Love or foolishness? Why do you think Sikuku’s wife declined the opportunity to lodge a formal complaint against her husband’s actions?
