Shock has gripped residents of Ninzi village in Kalisiro town council in Kyotera district after one of their own, Edward Mulindwa slit his throat and died.
Mulindwa’s lifeless body was found lying in a pool of blood inside his house on Tuesday morning. It is suspected that Mulindwa ended his life because of a dispute with his wife, one Winfred Mukisa resulting from excessive drunkenness.
Mukisa left her marital home about two weeks ago and opted to stay with her parents due to death threats from Mulindwa.
However, residents claim that Mulindwa had a mental problem, which they believe originated from excessive alcohol consumption and marijuana smoking.
According to Ninzi LC I chairperson Lawrence Kabugo says that Mulindwa has been a menace to the community for some time.
Masaka Regional Police Spokesperson Muhammad Nsubuga says they have taken the deceased’s body to Kalisizo hospital for a post mortem as investigations continue.
