Police have arrested a refugee of Congolese nationality for murder after stabbing his fellow colleague at Kisenyi Township in Central Division, Kampala City.
According to Patrick Onyango the Kampala Metropolitan police spokesperson, two Congolese refugees had a misunderstanding over a piece of soap on Friday.
It is alleged that one only known as Kasanavo Capeche went to a restaurant where INYATI MULAGA CLAUDIA works and grabbed a piece of soap to use.
“Mulaga got annoyed, grabbed a knife and stabbed Kasanova, who died instantly. The community arrested Mulaga and handed him over to the police” Onyango said.
Mulaga is currently detained at Old Kampala Police Station on murder charges while the deceased’s body was conveyed to city mortuary Mulago for postmortem examination.
Detectives recovered two knives with suspected blood stains from the scene.
Onyango appealed to the community not to resolve issues through violent means, but seek amicable methods.
