“She lost a lot of blood due to the multiple cuts on her body. She will require a lot of blood to support her together with her four months’ baby,” he said. The police is currently hunting Nakayte’s husband Ronald Mukyana to record a statement. Mukyana is suspected to sustained injuries in the attack before he went into hiding.


The Local Council-LCI Chairperson Robert Kabugo notes that the victim almost lost her life if it was not for the loud alarm that attracted neighbours to save her. “Residents swiftly responded and rushed her to the hospital for treatment. It was a tragic moment to the community, and we have always told our people to always consult village authorities for advice and amicable solutions other than using violence since it also ruins their lives,” Kabugo notes.


Mukono Division Police Commander, Abubakar Musiho notes that the suspect faces charges of attempted murder and threatening violence among others.
