At least five children of a family in Nakaseke District have turned orphans after their mother and father died following a domestic brawl.
Police in Nakaseke District this morning confirmed that Robert Sserugo allegedly murdered his wife Diana Nakayiza before he was lynched in revenge by a mob.
Nakaseke District Police Commander Ben Nuwamanya told journalists today.
The couple was resident at Ssegaly Village in Semuto Sub County, Nakaseke District.
Area LC I chairperson Daniel Ssepuuya revealed that Sserugo last night night brutally assaulted Nakayiza who was returning from a drug shop at Ssegalye Trading Centre, leaving her unconscious.
According to Ssepuuya, an unconscious Nakayiza was rushed to Kijjaguzo Health Centre III where she died shortly after arrival.
Locals also claimed that the pair had separated before the ill-fated day when Nakayiza visited Sserugo to reportedly ask for basic needs of their five children. May their soul rest in eternal Peace. END.
